Influences & Artist’s Statement:
I’ve been a student of Pointillism since my high school days. I was first introduced to this style of art by my good friend, and fellow artist, Pat Leapley. When I first saw him putting down dot after dot—for many hours—and then there was an amazing picture that emerged from the paper—WOW—It was amazing! Thus, I had gotten my first taste of Pointillism, and I was hooked. What is more artistically insane than putting down hundreds of thousands of tiny dots (.3mm to 1.0mm) to make an artwork—NOTHING is more insane. So, I had my KOH-I-NOOR RAPIDOGRAPH TECHNICAL PENS, black ink, THE DOORS (because that was the only music at the time I could do this work to), and a few other “items” helpful to create this type of work. Of course, Seurat was a big influence, even though my style and medium used was rather different. Not too many of my original works still exist, but there are some still in existence with collectors who commissioned my work.
Now, I’ve come up with a method to design Pointillism Photography, and I don’t cheat by using some plugin! I have missed working in this style, so this collection is my application of Pointillism to Photography.
