Ever since discovering, by golly, that our computer had photo collage software on it (who knew?), I’ve played around with images by combining things on the computer and then altering them via the computer’s many interesting graphic features. This “fishwave” is one result. A photo of a heavy drapery is blended with some pictures of koi swimming and all that has been run through the washer on the permanent press cycle until it looked as you see it above. Sometimes I paint from images like this that I’ve created on computer. After they become paintings, they can be photographed and rerun through the same computerized process again to be transformed into something else. Metamorphosis.
Then, too, there’s the computer between the ears with which we can attempt daring things.
