An Homage to one of my very favourite artists, Surrealist, Max Ernst ( 1891-1976 ). Ernst's artistic achievements started in original Dada, moved into Surrealism, which in both fields he was a key and influential leader. Later he ventured into abstraction, collage, and sculpture with incredible results. Whatever this consummate artist turned his vision on resulted in unforgettable and highly accomplished imagery.


I wanted this homage to not only collage his work but to also have the look and feel of an "Ernst". Max Ernst himself was a highly accomplished collage artist and he also often worked in multiple planes, long before digital layering. Even my looping lines reference paintings of Ernst's such as, "Young Man Intrigued by the Flight of a Non-Euclidian Fly" ( 1942/47 ) and "The Bewildered Planet" ( 1942 ).


Ernst's work can be hauntingly beautiful, quietly disturbing, wonderfully innocent ( "33 Little Girls Chasing Butterflies", 1958 ) or deeply cerebral. His abstraction has never been recognized for it's high degree of accomplishment, placing him, in my opinion, as equal to any of the great European Abstractionists, the American Abstract Expressionists and the Post "Ab-Ex" painters of the 60's and 70's.

Ernst strongly believed that making art was an entirely new venture each time. He felt that an artist that knows what they want exactly and stays strictly to that idea, is not an artist. An artist must be prepared to accept and incorporate what comes out of the process of making each piece, the surprises and the accidents. In that Max Ernst was true to the Surrealist spirit of the time that sought to give complete allowance for the expression of the sub-conscious. That made him a both an accomplished painter but also a great improvisor. His aesthetic can be summed up in his statement:


"Blind Swimmer, I have made myself see. I have seen. And I was surprised and enamoured of what I saw" - Max Ernst.

About The Artists:


Lori Andrews’s autobiographical photos are based on personal reflections of objects, places and memories from her childhood, translated and recreated through her perspective of an adult woman. Both model and photographer, Andrew’s employs anonymity as a device in the recreation of these memories, resulting in a sense of “every-woman” for the viewer.


Dennis Evans’ work reflects the psychology of living under big sky in Regina Saskatchewan, and the influence of his concern for spirituality and the environment. Through skillful documentation of the phenomenal prairie skies the work explores notions of time, movement and place.


Mark Florian’s photos are perhaps the most visually complex in the exhibition, a result of the artists process that includes both in-camera multiple exposures as well as digital layering in the post-production of various images. The large format work, reflect a sense of the multiplicity in time, place and perspective. The resulting single images comprising often 10 to 20 images become rich tapestries of photographs both in appearance and metaphorically.


Greg Gerla’s photography is abstract and minimal, yet in its focal juxtaposition evokes the emotional and natural. His attention to style and composition is evident in these colour-saturated photographs. Referencing the urban environment Gerla uses depth and perception to investigate the visual relationships forged between natural and man-made spaces. Gerla presents a series that explores where we live and challenges how we look at space within that environment.


Ray Van Ness’ photos are the most traditional and yet perhaps the most experimental. The “Remnants” series looks at industrial architecture of the early 20th century including the Turner Valley Gas Plant while “Fragments” looks at the rhythm, pattern and shapes of modern and past urban architecture.


Digging out that old halloween image over the weekend reminded me that i used to have fun playing with textures and going a bit beyond pure photography. I thought of it as bridging the gap between the digital world and where i started with my creativity (old fashioned paint & brushes and traditional landscape paintings).


I chose this subject for a return to those digital layering techniques, as i recently found out that my 'pilgrimage' image (see first comment below) was purchased (via getty) for a japanese book cover and it was a timely reminder that less is often more, to give the viewer a chance to use their imagination.


BTW, if anyone should ever see the book cover, please let me know, we dont usually get told exactly where an image will be used when sold via getty, and its always really cool to actually see the real thing in the wild.

… Please press L to enlarge… patterns are made with Moiré effect … sorry that after jpg and upload there is some quality deterioration…


Moiré effect is a visual perception that occurs when viewing a set of lines or dots that is superimposed on another set of lines or dots, where the sets differ in relative size, angle, or spacing. The moiré effect can be seen when looking through ordinary window screens at another screen or background. It can also be generated by a photographic or electronic reproduction, either deliberately or accidentally. ( )

In this piece I've tried to create visually the disparity between the 'B&W' view of the public (the digital layer) and the media's 'happy ending storyline' (the felt layer) take on the complexities of this issue. I have deliberately put a gap between the two layers which forces the viewer to stand back to line the two layers up and literally 'take a step back to see the whole picture' of a complex and multi-layered issue.

a review

Paper, paint, collages and digital layering.

Best viewed large for texture effects.

In the Yorkshire Dales the land is divided up by stone fences many centuries old. No cement or other material is used, the stones are simply piled up in an artistic and stable manner.At around the same time the Incas in Peru practiced a similar form of stone construction, often quite spectacular


Texture thanks to JoesSistah

Three fireworks images were shot on a tripod with long exposure in RAW. Processed the RAW files using Photoshop CS5. The three files were then digitally combined to create this one fireworks image. I increased the overall saturation with Hue/Saturation in Photoshop. Curve adjustment to increase the overall contrast. 1 layer mask in soft light mode at 50% gray, using brush tool to lighten and darken some areas of the image, to bring out details. Used Nik Sharpener Pro to sharpen image.


My second upload of the 4th of July fireworks display with Portland Oregon downtown skyline from Eastbank Esplanade. This is a digital layering of three fireworks images shot that night. It was great shooting alongside Joe, Vincent, and lots of other photographers.

A compilation of pictures and digital layers. I remember taking pictures of the moon phases for a whole month. One night I realized, "I shouldn't be out here all by myself", I hadn't even taken my dog with me. It was only a short distance from home, but still not the best idea I've had.

The stars are from a filter in my digital program. The cliffs are near Bryce Canyon and the picture of me is from another vacation. digital layers and double exposure...just reflexions...)

digital layering involved

I took a digital colour photo of this subject as well as the B&W film shot and I overlayed the colour from the digital shot on the film shot in Photoshop and carefully aligned the digital shot to the film shot as best as possible using the warp tool and set the digital layer as "color". And so I have the 1934 Verichrome B&W film shot with the colour from the digital shot on top making it a colour image.

Digital art from a blank canvas. My heron drawing was created in hard copy, then scanned to digital and painted (air brush).
