SIGGRAPH 1987

Artist Statement SIGGRAPH 1987

I do all my imaging on a computer graphics system that has software specifically developed to meet my needs. This software allows me to works in ways that are not possible in pigmented physical mediums. Still the images as they exist on the CRT are not in themselves satisfying as art pieces, so I further enhance them by translating them into physical mediums. The two mediums I currently prefer are printmaking and painting. Both involve experimentation with images taken from the computer through the film recorder and use film as a transfer medium. Creating the actual physical art works is a laborious, time intensive process. There are as many technical problems to solve in the translation process as there are on the computer end.
