Digital Art

Digital art is an artistic work or practice that uses digital technology as an essential part of the creative or presentation process. I use a variety of digital technologies in the production of art including, Corel Draw, Adobe Photoshop, and Illustrator.

My love of architecture and fine art painting inspired me to explore graphic design and art created using digital technology and I have endeavored to master this craft. Digital is the newest medium artists like myself have discovered in our quest to tell stories constrained only by the limits of our imagination. Digital Artists are creating all over the world. Some favorites are: Nik Ainley, Alberto Seveso, Shadow Chen,Marco Escobedo.

After Ordering Your Print the order processing takes approximately 10 days. Your print is custom printed. I personally inspect each print for quality numbering, and signing. Then your print is shipped and you are sent a tracking number by email.

The print ships unframed in a sturdy tube with a certificate of authenticity.

New Media: Color, Digital art. Digitally created elements that may include geometric shapes as well as swirls of exploring light and subtle line. It has a modern feeling and I hope the color scheme invokes positive feelings in viewers.

Digital Prints are suitable for framing.

I produce my prints on both fine art paper and high quality canvas. Each print is created by order and is in a limited edition.

The works will be signed on front and back and accompanied with a Certificate of Authenticity and print number.

Normally I will ship the artwork rolled for sake of economy and reduced shipping costs. However, paper that is of heavier weight will be shipped flat.

Paper and Canvas Type

Canvas giclee printing results in rich, intense colors, that are faithful to the digital art.

Limited Series are printed on high quality white poly-cotton canvas to ensure that the saturation and sharpness is clear and the colors are true.

Canvas selected are normally 400GSM white poly-cotton canvas.

Paper Images are printed with archival grade Epson Ultrachrome GSX inks and a variety of papers such as TORCHON – .050 mm thick.A Hahnemühle paper with a natural texture and a bright white that is perfect for digital art.

Other Substrate Printing Surfaces

Clients may also request other materials such as metal or glass prints as desired and I will be happy to produce this for you individually.

Artworks are created using a combination of techniques that may be combines of fine art printing with detailed drawings that are then enhanced or drawn using various media.

Gestural Action Abstract Expressionist Paintings

Gestural Action Abstract Expressionist Paintings

Gestural. The term Gestural or Action Paintings originally came into use to describe the painting of the abstract expressionist artists such as Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Franz Kline, Robert Motherwell, Hans Hofmann who are some of my favorites. To me it is a style of painting in which paint is spontaneously added to the substrate in a variety of manner: dribbled, splashed brushed or smeared onto the canvas or paper.

I explore many methods including pulling and scraping or applying paint with a brush or palette knife. I love the various textures that can be created by adding lines, marks or embellished areas.

Each painting has a life of its own and I simply allow my emotions and appreciation for color to be released. If you study the painting you may find hidden elements that appear. I create these works using various media including oil, acrylic, latex, industrial enamels, cold wax, encaustic and plaster. I also like to paint on various substrates that include: canvas, paper, metal, wood panels, or rigid foam insulation panels that are made of either polystyrene, polyisocyanurate, and polyurethane.

I am Inspired by many artists including contemporary artists such as Gerhardt Richter, Francis Bacon, Jackson Pollack, William de Kooning, Richard Sera, and Pierre Soulages. I have developed my own unique technique for my Pull Series. My technique consists of carefully adding and subtracting layers of colors by using Palette knives, brushes and squeegees.

I create a dense, subtle and slowly deepening mixture of overlapping colors and shapes. I have developed a complex painting medium for oils and acrylics that allows me to build up unusual textures. Through research I have learned how to create heavily and impasto paintings. I work in oil or in mixed media and often add other elements such as cold wax.
