My art is presented in four forms, all of which originate
from moving pictures. The three static, or stationary, forms my art takes
Please keep in mind that all my images are frozen from moving video,
having been created while on-screen. Each frozen image is then electronically
transferred to whatever final form it is best suited to.
1. IMAGE-TO-CANVAS An image-to-canvas is limited in number to
one. It is a ONE-OF-A-KIND. The negative is then marked to ensure no duplications
will be produced.
2. IMAGE-TO-TRANSPARENCY An image to transparency is also limited
to one. After it has been enlarged to its chosen size, it is mounted on
Plexiglass and laminated. A lightbox is then custom built to fit the lens.
When illuminated, the image appears like a still picture on a television
screen. Its effect can be quite dramatic.
3. IMAGE-TO-PAPER The image to paper is, in essence, a VIDEOGRAPH . It is drymounted on acid-free board or masonite
and laminated. It is signed and numbered.
Although the limitation on the number of duplications may go as high
as fifty, I prefer to keep my art images to one-out-of-one.
My interest in producing artistic works is to consistently bring out
new and different images for art enthusiasts to enjoy and collect. I have
no desire to keep repeating and reproducing images that I've already created.
The fourth form of my art is really where the works all start from. This
is moving VIDEO ART. Created on videotape, it is viewed as Art-In-Motion.
The images may change shape and colour from one moment to the next.
In viewing art in this form, I am able to introduce sound to the viewer's
senses, be it music, sound effects, or a combination. This has a direct
effect on the viewer's perception of what they are seeing. The same picture
seen a second time, but with a drastically altered soundtrack, will almost
always be perceived differently.
I try in all my videos to have original scores composed for each piece.
As you watch, the soundtrack often tends to follow the action of the picture.
Custom work can be done on request. Simply send me your videotape with
a description of the kinds of images you would like to see created. I will
return the tape when I am finished along with a number of proofs. Contact
me by phone, fax, or e-mail and let me know your preferences. Details can
be worked out at that time.
This is tomorrow's art form,
TODAY! I hope you enjoy it.
My hope is that the artwork and information in this web page will help
you understand some of what can be, and has been created, with video in
art. Although the images you will see are mostly static, in video they are
always moving, always changing, always going forward. These are what I consider
to be some of the best images of my videoart pieces. I will let you be the
