This compilation blends travel, architectural and true 3D wall art.
I have culled a few representative images from each of the genres that have inspired my work over the last decade.
My goal as an artist is to convey the possible, to move the viewer away from the present and offer an altered vision.
Transforming the recognizable into the imaginary offers the observer a chance to be transported from the “concrete” world into a semi- abstract, imagined environment.
A traveler’s Impressions: Experiencing the sights and sounds, the rituals and customs, everyday occurrences and spontaneous events of our fellow humans leave a multitude of lasting impressions.
Shape and Shadow: Geometry and architecture are inexorably bound. Shapes, curves, angles and lines give rise to construction that marries beauty and purpose.
Metamorphosis: Architectural photography is reborn in this three- dimensional adaptive twist on traditional shape and form.
