Bruised Topography

For the past fifteen or so years, I have drawn the human figure without paper, using an electronic tablet, which sends the gestures directly into Photoshop. There transparent layers make it possible for me to dissect and recombine my lines so as to find new figures. I add photographs, scans, electronic paint and text. Eventually new stories emerge. 

The prints that materialized in this show tell of the life and electrical/chemical communication of trees in a forest. They tell of my distress witnessing the “clear cutting” of great swaths of land, the destruction of systems which would better be left to sequester carbon from our atmosphere, the loss of places to breathe and be revitalized.

My visual stories in this show are about my ruminations: the planet that I love (such as it is) and the humans who inhabit that planet, such as we are.
