PHOTOGRAPHY

Many years ago I began doing 35mm close up photographs of my abstract paintings, my goal at the time was to chronicle compositions within a composition - I wasn't sure how I would use them other then to train my eye and find a world within a world - something I found visually and aesthetically exciting. I stored the digital images away and kind of forgot about them until I began to re-explore photography after my move from New York City to

Albuquerque, New Mexico via the San Francisco Bay Area - a lot of moving.

For years my studio and art storage were in several different places and it wasn't until I moved to Albuquerque that I was finally able to have all of my remaining work in one space - over 50 years worth of paintings, drawings, monotypes, photographs and sculpture. Most of my work had been earlier photographed in slide form and some digital and I realized I didn't have a solid high resolution digital file - so I set out to make one. Six months and about three thousand works later I had a file.

During the process of building the file I upgraded my equipment and began doing night photography mostly as a result of my insomnia and love for the night, late evening and early morning New Mexico light - which allowed me to do photo editing and manipulation.

After I finished the photo inventory of my earlier work I started looking at it more closely and realized it was like looking at a time capsule - a half century plus of art making, a lot of good and a lot of bad. I considered physically cutting and tearing up most of it but decided to start by doing it digitally and making digital time collages just to see how I could bring these visual history's together as a single work - realizing that when fragmenting a painting, drawing or photograph makes it neither good nor bad - it's' simply incomplete yet a piece of time. In these photographs are sections of work done in every decade since the 1950s including some childhood stuff I saved.

I title this series `Sequence' as time sequence. I have always had a keen interest in depicting time and movement in my work - These photographs are about a collection of time - passed and brought together - in fragmented form and constructed composition.
