Concepts My art has always related to personal faulty vision, but takes two forms. I am interested in the art/medical/scientific relationship connecting with macular deterioration and I approach this by using computer manipulation for both 2-D and 3-D conceptual work. The collaged and painted work is based on the distortion I perceive but is also 'time-based' using a layering technique to respond to archeological traces and marks within the landscape. Influences My work relates to deteriorating vision.
