There is something mysterious about transparency. Throughout my career I have utilized transparent materials and media to express this paradoxical relationship between that which can simultaneously reveal and obscure, in order to form a new message. In the past fiberglass screens and back lit vellum were just two of the many ways I utilized a transparent medium to create a sense of illusion. Thus I was inspired to begin my latest Illusion Series, dedicated entirely to the mystery of layers and the interactions that can transpire before our very eyes in the face of what may at first seem comfortably familiar. I use layers of mostly three photographs, often some of my art, to create the illusion. My wolfman drawing is seen on the work as my signature and a touch of the human hand.
