Artist's Description

It happens that every once in awhile, I have to decide between two different versions of a series. I tend to decide in favor of the later version, since after all, I’ve put more time into it, so it must be better… In a few cases, I’ve realized later that I’ve made the wrong decision, and that the earlier version was superior. This series from 2008 is one such case. I had created these wonderful biomorphs in ArtMatic and adjusted them in Photoshop to create a stark black and white series of organisms. Instead of stopping there, I decided they looked like they were reef creatures and created a coral reef background for them. In retrospect, the originals are so much more graphic, so I present them here as the “Amoebas” series, alongside their more colorful relations with backgrounds, the “Reef Amoebas” series. Some of these biomorphs can also be found in my 2006 series “Artificial Animalcules”.
