About The Artwork

What is real? What is an illusion? Can the illusion speak more powerfully than the “real”? The digital revolution in the arts has provided wonderful tools to create surrealistic imagery. I no longer just take images but rather, make images. I may shoot objects with a final image in mind, or just collect them for my “library” that I draw from when an idea comes to me. Some images speak their message better in Black and White where line and form become dominant… where the emotional impact of color is absent and urges the viewer to provide their own. The Past Always Catches Up was an image that presented itself late at night while wandering around, camera in hand. I was walking near the docks in an Italian harbor town, came to a cross road and looked toward town. These four men were walking away from me and presented a compelling silhouette against the street lights. I later added the negative shadows to represent their past following them... as it follows all of us. The Past Always Catches Up is produced in a limited edition of 10 in it's largest print size. It is printed on Hahnemühle Photo Rag 308 with Archival Pigments. The image size is 40 inches x 40 inches with a 2" border for a final work that measures 44 inches x 44 inches and is shipped in a crush-resistant tube. Signed and numbered on the front, it also comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. The Certificate of Authenticity has a unique hologram and serial number system that is also present on the back of the Limited Edition print. Your Limited Edition print will be registered with the Hahnemühle Art Registry. You can also acquire the image in various open edition sized prints with a choice of framing or as a gallery-wrapped canvas.
