Your newest additions to the Alternative Collection are receiving attention.
A: Can you tell us: Where does the inspiration come from for this collection?
J: I was showing my artwork to a friend at a Gallery reception, it was said, "You should try Art." That came to no surprise, as I consider my artwork as Fine Art Photography. Traditional photography was becoming too traditional. People come into my life at amazing moments, and have strongly influenced me in a positive light. I am grateful for this. I was able to see a person experimenting in a particular medium which appeared to be their first time; there was evidence of uninhibited creation filled with risks. I was drawn to that, and started experimenting in that fashion. I paid attention to chemicals and lifting of transparencies adhering to film and final prints. The process was repeated several times, and the results are never the same.
A: Do you use Photoshop to manipulate these images?
J: Yes, yet I feel it is not necessary to use it all the time, less is more where images themselves become Art.
A: What is the piece called? What is it?
J: This piece is called Goldfish, there is only one Goldfish in the image, can you spot it?
A: I think so, is that it? What are you planning to do with these images?
J: Continue on my journey to be inspired, and make art. These images would be best displayed on acrylic. Upon closing this body of work, I may select a few images and print on acrylic.
A: Can I have one?
J: Of course!
