My objective is to create art, which reflects subliminal messages where content, color, hue, texture and depth evokes emotions creating a subliminal stamp, which the viewer takes with them. The nature of my obsession with much of my art encompasses the use of my photographic images and scanned paintings combined with art I create with a digital drawing/painting pad and programs like Photoshop. I call this art form Computer Evolved Art. CEA is an art form in which the photographer, computer artist, painter or illustrator uses the computer as a tool to bring about the evolution of their work into unique works of art. Computer Evolved Art pays homage to the artists by attempting to define the computer as a tool used for the transformation of art. Unlike the often referred to terms of computer art, digital art, computer generated etc. which tend to give the computer precedence over the human creators of the work. I strongly embrace the concept of altering ones preconceived ideas of art and life in order to discover what is NEW. Conceptually, NEW is similar to what is often referred to as the innocence of a child, for me it is the imagination of an artist.
