In 1975 or 1976, I had a dream about being at a photography exhibit. There was one image that completely blew me away. It was of a woman who seemed to pop right out of the picture. I was jealous that I hadn't thought of it. When I awoke and told my friend, she pointed out that it was my dream, so I had thought of it. But I couldn't crfeate it photographically at that time. Recently it occurred to me that all I had to do was manipulate light, shadow, and color values to make it seem that she is popping of the surface.

My works are a conversation that I have with myself about time, and across time.

I combine architectural interior and figurative photography with digital illustration to create surreal representations of my perceptions, based on dreams and unusual experiences. Computer manipulation of digital photography permits me to show experiences that cannot be photographed.

My work draws upon the vast visual lexicon of my early notes, sketches, and photographs. Early images are combined with new elements photographed from my environment, or studio set-ups
posed to complete my vision.  —Jeffrey C. Marienthal
