Drawings: These pastel and charcoal drawings were done between 1968 and 1976. They represent the early beginnings of my career in art. All are 30x40” on Strathmore archival illustration board. They typify the type of work I was doing at that time. These images are all I have left of hundreds that I drew during this period. Many were published as unlimited lithographs by Heritage Press and Windsor Art, and distributed internationally. If you have one of my drawings from this period I would like to hear from you.
Collage: At some point I began combining drawings with collage and this evolved into a series of photographic montages specifically designed for lithographic reproduction. Later I did another series of collage with mixed medium using imported hand-made papers overdrawn with pastels.
Original collages are 30x40”, Lithographic Prints are 24x30”
Photographs: I think of photography as a facilitation to what I do with art in general. For example I began working on a series of paintings a few years ago working with photos taken with a cheap Olympus underwater digital camera, I photographed models in a swimming pool thinking only to use them as the basis for the paintings. Using photoshop to alter the images I became increasingly absorbed with the photographs themselves eventually seeing them as viable works on their own.. I often take photographs to preserve ideas and inspirations to the extent that I consider the medium an extension of what I do and how I look at things.
