About

'I am currently pursuing a plein air painting practice. This strain of my artistic journey has its foundation in a souring relationship with mobile phone/device photography, digital imagery filtering and image effect/glitch application.  Although photography can capture a rendering of a scene I became frustrated with how photography seemed to remove something of what I saw.  

When selecting a scene to paint I will focus in on these areas of frustration, usually looking through a mobile devices screen first.  It is only when I notice this conflict that I settle to paint/draw.  Many things can trigger this but primarily it will be distant scenes or conflicts in light and shadow.  Choosing to approximate what I see I have been working towards rendering a truth.
