I have been fascinated by television imagery since my first viewing of test patterns in the front display window of a small town hardware store.
I eventually transferred that interest to ways of reproducing the effect on paper while a student in Fine Arts. Eventually, I succumbed to investigating the concept through image editing software on a computer.
The original photographs were color negatives or color slides that date back to the 1970s through to the 1990s. They are part of a life project of capturing images as they present themselves. The images were selected as being appropriate to the thought that being seen on TV is validation; of the moment, the place, the experience. The Chair of Final Remorse was exhibited at ‘Siggraph 2003’ in San Diego.
The world presents itself and I observe. There are times the observation becomes an obsession. Sometimes, a casual encounter. These moments become the photographs I interpret by exaggeration or simplification. I have been an exhibitor since 1969; exhibiting photographs, painting and prints through 150 exhibitions, primarily in US university, college, and community galleries in 31 American States; in BC, Alberta, Ontario and in web galleries in Canada, Australia, China, Thailand, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, Italy and the United States. I now publish books of current and past projects as a means of closure and completion. My images are marketed in the United States by PrintedArt.com and are also available on Amazon.com Born and educated in Alberta, I moved to the coast in 1984, and have been living in Victoria since 1986. .
