The Geometric Illumination Series
Rectangular images as light boxes or for windows

The Geometric Illumination series is based on a radical reinterpretation of photography. I use my large abstract paintings as subjects for a variety of unique fast-action, swooshing, low-shutter speed photographs that transform hard-edged dimensional shapes into light-emitting compositions. I use digital technology to amplify the images for maximum effect. I free-sample the images: digitally cutting, skewing, distorting, replicating and merging source images into new geometric configurations. These images are created as C-type translucent Lambda prints and are mounted on geometrically-cut clear acrylic and back-lit with LEDs. The final pieces are as much sculptural forms as they are photographs.
