Broken glass is transformed by the ocean, creating soft, gentle forms of color. Here is a small square vase with an arrangement of beach glass lit from below, with narrow supports on the base of the vase refracting the light to create the black frame.
The creative process is unique, all by hand. A twelve-color pigment print on Somerset Velvet is affixed to board and sealed with a clear-coat UV polymer, so no glass is needed, and the image is float mounted in a hardwood maple frame. The result is striking color, clarity and an uncanny three-dimensionality.
Most of the work is drawn from nature, but he enjoys creating images whose origins may not be readily clear. This kind of abstract view often leads to artworks that are intriguing, but also a bit mysterious. Always, the interaction is intended to be peaceful and relaxing.
