On December 1st 2010 I released Planet 04, the
first 14" X 11" limited edition cibachrome print ever released
from my Planet series.
ABOUT THE IMAGE
Planet 04 is the second planet being released as a llimtied edtion cibachrome print. Along with the ful-size 50" X 40" edition available through RARE Gallery, I have produced a special limited edition of 21, 14" X 11", unframed, cibachrome prints, that I am offering privately to my collectors. I construct imagined worlds using Photoshop, exploring the practice of contemporary landscape today. The cibachrome print has an archival lifetime of 300 years.
ABOUT THE PROJECT
The computer and Photoshop are my sole mediums to create images that are the basis for three ongoing series of works -- Planets, Islands, and Still Lifes. Employing techniques that resemble collage and painting by "borrowing" pixels of color from images found on the Internet using search engines, I entirely absent my use of the camera from the artistic process. My photographs honor Nature while celebrating Technology, an important concern for me in an age when humans are struggling to find a balance with the planet that sustains them. Through my art, I have found a way to showcase Nature's all-encompassing beauty while at the same time expressing my genuine concern for its preservation and safety.
