Build  Where You Please, Digital prints 20x30 inches

 

Build, IRIS,16 x 200 began life as a traditional drawing (30 x 40 on Rives BFK), was photographed, and then scanned into the computer. It is a sequenced piece made of ten 16 x 20 IRIS prints. The concept of the original drawing was to draw a "settlement" of houses built anywhere that it felt good compositionally. The resulting town was a comfortable rambling, organic place. The digital images were toned, reversed, compressed, and imbedded with the images of a horizon and a figure leaping from an automobile. The digital "place" lost a level of comfort but gained vast space.
