When people talk about a "Tree of Life," what do they see in their mind's eye, and what does it mean? I envision it here as a fanciful tree that might exist in another plane of reality. Like the kabbalistic Tree of Life, it might be perceived as an archetype of what is possible in life.

This print is part of a series of photo-collage-based prints that I began creating in late 2011. I start with photos I take myself, then alter and combine them in Photoshop. Previous to this series, I had used photography only to document my work--never as a creative tool. But I began having an overwhelming feeling, as I was looking around, that the images around me were just too beautiful and too intricate to not try to capture them in photos and to use that imagery in my work.

I'm not a photographer. When I take picture, I feel like more of a collector, picking up images to use in assemblages or collages, as one might collect old postcards or junk. I assemble and alter the images pretty extensively in order to make some kind of statement. I feel as though, in photography and Photoshop, I've gotten hold of a new brush, or a whole new toolbox.

One 10x10 archival giclee print, numbered, part of an open edition. Professionally printed on Hahnemule Museum Etching fine art paper using Epson Ultrachrome K3 inks. On backing board in clear protective sleeve, safely packed and shipped.

I can produce this print in any size up to about 18" square, which would run $89 plus some additional shipping. Convo me for details.
