It is the duty of the
artist to draw the audience into the work. Whether
it be through sculpture, painting, or the more modern
digital medium there should always exist a bridge
between the art and the viewer
For this body of work
I have combined the traditional medium of graphite
on paper with a more progressive digital medium. By
taking raw sketches and importing them into photoshop
I am able to create art that provides the bridge.
The powerful tools of the digital age allow for the
greatest degree of experimentation. This has allowed
me, as the artist, to bring forward a series of images
that truly reflect my intentions as a creator.
It is my belief that
by combining this imagery with the sometimes narrative,
sometimes poetic style of writing within this project,
I can create an even stronger bridge than is possible
with images alone.
