This compilation blends travel, architectural and true 3D wall art.
My goal as an artist is to alter the obvious, to move the viewer away from the present and offer new possibilities.
Transforming the recognizable into the imaginary offers the observer a chance to be transported from the “concrete” world into a semi-abstract, imagined universe.
"The Whole and Some of its Parts" features architectural photography reborn in this traditional and three-dimensional adaptive twist on shape and form. It is a before-and-after experience affording the viewer a direct channel from the everyday to the sublime.
"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.
