Artist's Description

This is a combination of a couple of earlier works (see “On the Down Beat” and “Diaphanies”) that were incorporated in to one composite. It was made up of several layers at different angles that were blended together with various blends in the layers panel pull down menu of Adobe Photoshop CS4. The end result was of smoky brown and gray colors. I inverted the work and the result was its negative image. It may not be easy to see the elements of “On the Down Beat” in the result but if one looks closely near the bottom of the piece they will see a portion of an ellipse that is black. Also because the two works that make up this composite were made with the same photograph of textured paper one may note the texture that is present in the two original pieces is more prominent and of greater contrast in the resulting work.
