Digital Alchemy Galleries Added

I've just updated the site with three new galleries, all focusing on a style of graphic work I call Digital Alchemy. In my mind I've divided the work between old and new, vertical and horizontal. The later because it makes a more pleasing viewing experience when you page through one image at a time. This has always been a challenge, especially with the tall vertical format I seem to like. I call them scrolls because they remind me of the long vertical scrolls you see in Asian art.


November Tropic, 1998, Archival Ink Jet print


What is digital Alchemy? Well that's a big question. Essentially it's a name I came up with  in 1998  to describe this new genre of work I had started to explore. I was taking traditional photography, graphic work from my commercial (and mostly digital) work, as well as pieces of drawings and paintings, and combining them all together in multi layered files and then printing them out with archival ink jet printers. At first I used the iris, then switched to Epson.
