Layers of Time (in the Garden) #1, Archival Pigment Inkjet Print
18 x 21

This piece is made up of twelve layers of images which have been adjusted many times. I have been developing a digital technique to bring together the look and feel of etching and woodcut, the traditional techniques I have worked with as a printmaker. I have used the functions of Photoshop software to develop the work from images I have collected. When drawing images I realize how difficult it is to catch that special moment as light, atmosphere and object constantly change. I wish to express change and movement and that time is made out of the overlapping of many little moments. I am looking for the moment when the light and atmosphere come together in a perfect balance and you are lifted out of yourself. I feel a spiritual connection to nature and intend the work to be universal and specific at the same time.
