Welcome to BUB-in-a-BOX photoART . . .

I came to photography in the 1970's as an artist; my intent was to use photography to augment my art, especially in references for painting. My instructor told me I had to choose: art or photography. I chose photography and became a decent photographer. Now, I've discovered that I no longer have to chose. Here, therefore, are six things about my art:

1. My MEDIUM is photography-based digital art. I use a photographic image as a canvas upon which to create art: I use brushes, colors, and other techniques to produce out-of-the-ordinary looks at ordinary things - unique images you won’t find anywhere else.

2. My SUBJECTS tend to be everyday things. I'm intrigued by the beauty in the unremarkable, the mundane, the easily overlooked. My notion of creativity, therefore, is based largely on making the familiar unique (think about that!).

3. My PALETTE is frequently black-and-white. I believe that tonality is much more important than color, and there is so much clarity and drama in the simplicity of monochrome. However, I don't disregard color if it makes a superior looking image.

4. My FORMAT is sometimes square because there is such visual ease that equilateral symmetry affords, plus there is great versatility in placement of the final product when decorating.

5. My TECHNIQUES primarily involve detail reduction and manipulation of light, the very essence of photography, especially in the midtones. I try to enhance the beauty already present by concentrating on tonal relationships. Through those techniques I have depicted major features, tonality, and colors; them I put things together in . . .

6. My STYLE (my 'Signature Style,' if I have one) is 'Layers of Slices' - it's a finishing style, sort of like producing a topographical map but instead of 'rings' depicting changes in elevation, they depict changes in tonality and/or color - stylized, if not quite abstract. Now your eyes have to do the rest, and make sense out of it.

I will happily REMOVE BORDERS or EDIT ANY IMAGE TO YOUR SPECIFICATIONS; just let me know.

Thank you very much for visiting . . . and enjoy.

Walt
