You should check it out. I have not met Emily yet, but I look forward to meeting her.

I'll have to go and see your original work.  The Outsider Folk Art Gallery has a very nice exhibition program- my friend Emily Branch is managing the space.  You might have met her?

My Pen & Ink works are images 2-12.

Thank You Kristen.  The works are digital alterations of my photos.  All of the images were originally photographs that I manipulated into abstract formations.  I notice you live in Reading.  I have original Pen & Ink drawings at Goggle Works in The Outsider Folk art gallery.

Curator’s Comment:


I’m unclear of your process and media in this piece, which has a decidedly digitized feel.  Despite the intensely saturated color and pixilation, it evokes a humanistic response with the reaching hands.  A glow seems to emanate from the yellow contour of the figure, charging the pictures red “static”. I really enjoy the color gradation in the background space, which fluctuates with complementary pinpoints of green.   The spoke wheel shape is also a primitive counterpoint to the smooth stylization of the overall image, and so I’m wondering if there is a commentary about technology?  I become even more intrigued and perplexed when I scroll through the other works you’ve posted, and stop at 7 and 8.  The large delineated masses of grey matter are arresting against the black white fields.  They act as a resonant sound against the blank white silence. I particularly like that these pieces hold the heavy visual weight of the mass at the top- precariously balancing on their smaller sides at the bottom.  These works seem to emit a gravitational pull, and reference element forces- perhaps at odds with a technological approach.  From a purely aesthetic rather than conceptual viewpoint, these works are economic and quite elegant.
