I wanted to explore a return to imaging the human figure. It seemed good sense to examine scanning images from magazines, 35mm color slides and photography prints; subsequently manipulating these images in Photoshop and CorelPhotoPaint. The idea was to uncover possi-bilities for paint application translations.Here is a sample of these images. There were so many images that I found it difficult to choose anything but a small sampling. Much of this imaging delt more with technical and learning issues and not art making. Selections are from sessions late in 2000 and mid-to-late 2001.
The canvas project never materialized. I stopped building these images in late 2001. The concepts behind this project still interest me and I am open to further development.Digital 2002
New digital painting based on work produced in 1978-79 before my move to CT from VT. It was never developed. Only 2 or 3 large oil/wax paintings and a series on oil/wax paintings on paper were produced; a lot of simple small line drawings were created as idea sketches. Somewhere along the line (over the years) this project got placed into the forgotten file.However, work from the 1987-91 period is close in overall attitude. Both projects were a deliberate focus away from linear gesture and toward simplified shape. See Canvas 1987-91.
I found 30 pages of line drawings from 1979. I scanned some of these line drawings and manipulated them in Corel PhotoPaint. Scanning and workup continues as of this writing (1/30/04). This project is still in the digitalizing stages. No canvase have been produced to date.This is a small sampling of manipulated digitized line drawings.
