Meant to be experienced as a single piece with three varied movements
of threes (that can be considered across, down, and / or diagonally)


Wake (Richard Serra)

I was looking for a way to highlight the sea-like sculptural waves of
Richard Serra’s piece, Wake, which can be experienced in Seattle
at the open air Olympic Sculpture Park. I decided to capitalize on an image
I took back in 2009 and marry it to a long exposure sky that I had photographed
in 2010. My intention was to create an artwork of an artwork, one that used
the parlor tricks of long exposure and compositing to further highlight the
feeling of motion that Serra’s sculpture expresses when you see it in person.
Perhaps, in the end, this is more of an homage to Serra’s intriguing artwork
than anything else.

Verge - David Braid

Verge, David Braid

Congratulations to David Braid for winning the 2012  Juno award for best traditional jazz album for his wonderful collection of solo piano compositions, Verge [note: the excerpt from the composition, “la phare,” which plays on the opening page to this website, comes from this album].   David used my image, “A Room With a View” for the cover (see below).  I am very excited about the future plans that David and I are working on for his next CD release (news forthcoming).  Meanwhile, I heartily recommend that you visit David’s website for more information.

Here is a link to a wonderful live  performance of “la phare” from 2011.
