2024 Statement

As a traditional oil painter who has witnessed the evolution of art into the digital realm, I have a unique perspective on the integration of technology and artistic expression. My journey into an exploration of fine art printing, redefining what constitutes an "original" artwork in an age where precision digital tools allow for unprecedented manipulation and detail.

The transition to digital art was not without its struggles – skeptics questioned the authenticity and durability of this new media. Yet this very resistance strengthened my resolve to push boundaries and reshape perceptions of what art can be. Each rejection was a layer added to my understanding of art's fluidity across mediums.

Now, as artificial intelligence (AI) emerges in the creative industries, I find familiar echoes of those early battles for acceptance. The rise of AI image generation provokes profound questions about authorship, emotion, and the human connection in art. If art is the communication of ideas that resonates with the viewer, then perhaps AI extends the canvas rather than restricts it.

In this new frontier, I see AI not as a replacement but as a collaborative partner – a tool to augment and challenge traditional artistic practices. My approach is one of openness, learning from the machine as it learns from my prompts and curation. The real artistry may lie in crafting those inputs that guide the AI's output.

As I continue exploring this territory, I embrace the roles of both teacher and student. I am redefining my own boundaries while contributing to the wider dialogue around technology's place in creative expression. Art is an ever-changing journey, and I am committed to a life of creatively expressing fleeting moments and emotions, embracing new and innovative artistic tools as they emerge, but never abandoning the roots

"The world is rapidly changing
and the lines between what is real and what is digital
is going to blend into a single consciousness,
making a new reality into space and time." 2019
