Blended Nudes 3

About the Book
Sometimes obvious, sometimes mysterious.
The union of unrelated subject matter, combined to reveal images
that represent a search for shape and form.
Or as I see it, a layered visual experience.
These images appeal to me because they do not merely represent the nude form, but introduce it as a secondary element to the surroundings.
The backgrounds are taken from natural and man made landscapes.
They entice the eye to be drawn beyond the depth of the images' surface.
The work reflects how the interaction of these elements evokes different moods and feelings
I have always had an interest in creating fascinating blends of bodyshapes with naturally organic and manmade elements, starting with compositing black&white negatives in the darkroom. Today I embrace the best in computer software, self publishing products, museum-grade print technology and custom framing materials to realise the best possible output from these images. I have spent over 30 years as a professional graphic designer, which has helped me to achieve creative and intriguing works with my blended nude images. In recent years I have begun to establish myself as a respected contemporary artist and have had a number of sales of my works.
