Artist’s Statement

Look closer. Can you see it? There is an extra dimension to my work. I love to design three dimensional images with volume and depth.  I build sculptural images in layers using material printers.  There are few teachers or practitioners in this medium, and I am enthralled by the creative opportunities that flow from unconstrained innovation - the process is as much fun as the result.

Art has been awakened in me through technology, and a humble interest has blossomed into passion. I have journeyed here along many routes and through many disciplines - lawyer, student of science, computers, fatherhood - and each experience shapes my perspective in ways that can be contrasting, unifying and unique. I look for odd angles, discordant images and contrasting media. This is the spirit that I bring to my designs.

I live and work in Toronto, Canada.

Artist’s Biography:

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, the artist is helping to pioneer a new computer-aided art medium.  Crafting photo-interpretive designs with material layering technology, the artist forges sculptural images that are rich with dimensionality and contour.

The artist has innovated two styles of design:

Sculptural Images

Part photograph, part sculpture.

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, the artist is helping to pioneer a new computer-aided art medium.  Crafting photo-interpretive designs with material layering technology, the artist forges sculptural images that are rich with contours and dimensionality.

The artist has innovated his own digital modelling, rendering and design techniques.  Each layer (50 to 250 per work) is sculpted, textured and coloured, until they accrete to a cohesive image. It is a labour of love.

 

eLuminations:

If photography is captured light, an eLumination is what happens when the light is reanimated.

Using computer aided design and proprietary photogrammetry techniques, light joins forces with photographic art to create dramatic three dimensional images. Sometimes the effect is photo realistic. Sometimes the image is a composition of shadows. Sometimes it is a bit of both. Light will cause colours to blend, shadows to form and tones to intensify, all while filling the room with a glow.
