Photography has been an obsession since I was 13 years old and went off to Italy clutching my mother’s 1940s roll film camera. I’ve been fooling with computers since I bought an Amiga 1000 back in 1985. My first chunky pixelized images were digitized into that machine using a black and white CCTV camera. At last, with today’s software and hardware I feel that I can create the images I see in my mind’s eye. Visit my website at

    Great work Chris. I appreciate your dedication to my favorite artist.

  • Since I saw an exhibition of his work at the Tate Modern in London he has been my favorite too. Just love that style. Wish I could paint so I can emulate him! Of course being me I wouldn’t be able to stick to one style for more than five minutes! :-) Thanks for a great comment Rodney, Cheers.

    Hopperian? Heh heh… Yep… get the sense of the leavings of thoughtful people. Sort of reflections of what they intended once-upon-a-time. These are our ruins Chris. Like the ones that sixth century peasants roamed among. Things that still have enough of their parts and shapes to let us guess at intent by deciphering the form-follows-function code. But not enough of their parts, or symbiotic partners remain to let us recreate a time when they sparkled new in the light. Your imagination ROCKS!

  • You are too too kind Ted, but I’m very grateful for it! Coming from a master of the genre such as your good self these words mean a great deal. Thanks very much indeed.
