My art is a hybrid type of performance art, involving traditional painting and multimedia enhancements. The essential technique I employ is capturing a slice of motion with a high-resolution still camera, and then editing the images in a desirable sequence. This technique requires a fusion and a tight balance of drawings created on paper with drawings created with light. I experience this merging as a kind of dance: a combination of posed states and transitional movements.
