These paintings tackle the formal challenges of painting, yet the completed works are digitally produced. The imagery in “Decoys” is influenced by how we receive communication in today’s digitally enhanced environment and by how individuals determine and create reality from cultural and geopolitical media. In essence, the imagery is about editing and selective memory. The process employs photography, acrylic paint and digital manipulation, in a method that incorporates multiple layers of manipulation.

Tart, Klein Art Works, Chicago, IL, 2004
Time, Klein Art Works with The POND, Chicago, IL, 2003
