Yellowstone Lake, “MultiPlex Series” MultiPlexing represents a process of mirroring and unfolding an image to observe its hidden symmetrical qualities. I apply the process to a wide range of subjects, transforming simpler random forms them transforming them through additive processes into new structures of balance and symmetry, revealing new meanings. Sometimes, I destabilize the course via additive visual notions that slightly skew the image equilibrium. I began practicing the MultiPlexing art form piecemeal (by the single analogue photo image process) in the darkroom – a very laborious exercise. Digital processes makes things much easier. My first exhibitions of MultiPlexes (in the form of photo-assemblages) were shown in 1984, in Dallas, Texas, at the Turtle Creek Gallery, and in 1987, at the Houston Center for Photography. This work, perhaps seeded from Op Art, seeks to be more than a Rorschach Test, more than a wallpaper. I search, through the mind-friendly medium of repetition, to uncover formal beauty in an external world of randomness.
