The art on this site begins with scans (mostly) or photographs (sometimes) of collages, paintings, and ephemeral constructions made from organic and human-made objects. These raw materials are transformed in many layers of change. I look at the work in every way I can think of (print, slideshow, web page) and then adjust colors, contrast, texture, and dimensions until the ideal image emerges.
I believe in magic moments. Am not afraid to be sentimental and adore a tweaked cliché. Two of my favorite pastimes are watching paint dry and observing green tendrils unfold.
CatRutgers4art is an evolutionary experiment and space to create and reflect. It records ideas over time, building an accessible archive of inspiration. A special feature is the
Guest Spot, which highlights work by other artists who have graciously agreed to share their vision. There’s personal history, too, from adventures in gardening to memories of my grandfathers.
