Artist Statement:


    This continues a series of images that began in 1974 which explore the potentials of marking complex images from very simple marks. The image was created using geometric tools in Adobe Freehand, and then converted in Photoshop for rasterization and further image processing. I remain concerned about the metaphorical allusions, that are embedded in these software tools. I believe that unconsidered use of such tools encourages the proliferation of “post modernist” illusion and appropriation. In my own work, I hope to build a bridge between modernist concerns with “intrinsic” qualities of the computational metamedium and these “simulatory” qualities of metaphor-based “user-friendly” technology.
