My art is the result of a two-decade-long quest to bend, blend, twist, twirl, swirl and otherwise distort light. As a refractionist, my work is created by applying “filters” before the light hits my lens, mainly frost, ice, water, glass & oil. I take great joy in developing new techniques and in discovering the rich worlds of color that I dreamt of long ago when I first started down this path. I can’t make paintings, so I instead try to take photos that look like them. Historically, I’ve been more inventor than artist. For most of the past two decades, I have been creating other cool things like apps, games, food forests & communities, but now I am turning my creative attention towards this art. I have a large number of intriguing pieces, so in order to make them more special I will be selling them as single-edition prints. About Refractionism Refractionism is a photographic technique wherein the image is altered before hitting the lens. In some ways, it is a response to the world of ‘filters’ and digital art, serving as a reminder that optics can perform feats that software can still only dream of. It’s also a reaction to the world of mass media and the information wars; a reminder that everyone is presenting their own version of reality, and that truth depends on angles and lenses.
