Statement

My main passion has always been painting, but while a student at Art Center College of Design, majoring in Illustration, I discovered experimental photographic techniques and began incorporating them into my work. Soon the photograph became the foundation and the paint became a means to expand the object quality of the work. Originals are often as large as 40”X60”. Recently, I’ve started to shoot more color work, applying the same textural techniques as I do with black and white images. You can see more of my work and find contact information for commissions on my website http://www.lightspacefineart.com/ and studio visits are always welcome. Thanks for looking and remember “eliminate the obvious, exaggerate the essential!” -Matisse
