I have been in data processing (computer nerd) for over 50 years. I have been an active artist for the last 30 years. I was asked recently, how did a computer nerd become and artist?
When I considered an answer, I found it wasn’t obvious how that actually came to be. So I put a little effort into what became this book. To describe what I went through, what affect me, and how I turned out, as an artist. At least so far.
The process I use I developed over a period of about 30 years. It involves photography, sculpture, digital scans and hand painting after being printed to canvas. I call this process Hybrid Digital Surrealism
I have zero formal training as an artist, but I believe art is a conversation between the artist and the viewer, using the artwork as a starting point.
My take on surrealism is that it asks the viewer to participate, to contribute to at least one side of that conversation, while letting their mind roam a little. Or in plain regular guy language, let yourself go a little. Loosen up. Look between the lines. Hopefully, my art will open up the viewer to new ideas and contemplation.
It certainly does that for me.
