Art – Painting, Drawing, etc. – 1980’s

For the last couple of years of college at Wayne State University I studied oil painting under Mel Rosas, and for a short time afterwards I was actively painting as a means to create images that weren’t possible to do with a camera. While I had experimented with printmaking and sculpture as well, painting was another way of working through my ideas.

This led to an eventual simplification and ultimately abstraction of the same geometric forms that I found so interesting in my photography.

Ultimately photography and digital art is where my focus turned to during the 1990’s until today although I have worked on a few new paintings in the past year just to see if I could still do it, see if you can spot one in the group below. Not sure if I’ll do more but I’m glad that I still can.
