Two Sides To Every Story

Paintings have two sides - one for all to see, one always hidden. Two contrasting yet similar viewpoints to strike up a conversation. My process reveals both truths while dramatically magnifying the surfaces to show every detail of their similarities and differences.

This multimedia process incorporates analog and digital techniques; miniature acrylic paintings, photographic processes, and high resolution digital imaging. As a result, swirls of paint and textures that can't be seen with the naked eye come alive in colorful, magnificent detail. The two truths are revealed side by side.

 
 
 

A closer look

The same part of each image is overlapped showing the similarities and differences of both sides

This detail represents about one inch of the painting. The intense magnification reveals tiny details and nuances of the acrylic painting that can only be seen when greatly enlarged.

The two images are to be presented large, side by side as mirror images.
