COSMIC-SCAPE

generative digital art landscape
Multiple, blended foregrounds over ethereal "skies" give this abstract landscape series an extraterrestrial appearance.

ABSTRACT LANDSCAPE

generative digital art landscape
In this series I blend multiple, erratic horizons with mountainous forms and stalactite-like smearings to create a colorful, abstract landscape.

OSCILLO-SCAPE

generative digital art landscape
Here I've tinkered with the abstract landscape slightly to add stalagmite-like smearings that make this series more like a scientific image depicting the "landscape" of a brainwave.

HORIZON

generative digital abstract landscape
A most basic, abstract landscape is a simple horizon; Here a dark gradient implies the horizon over colorful "land" and "sky" regions.

CELLULAR

generative digital art abstract
Adding a vertical gradient to the simple horizon transforms these images into an abstraction of cellular formations such that we might see under a microscope.

CITYSCAPE

generative digital art cityscape
Tall, slender architectural forms are mirrored in a reflective foreground to suggest a futuristic city with sketchily rendered details.

CLEVELAND

generative digital art cleveland cityscape
My home city... City of history and water and decay and renewal... ...of struggle, of life. Here I gather elements from all my abstractions to create an emotive view of Cleveland.

ART DECO

generative digital art deco
Repeatedly drawn geometric shapes in carefully arranged yet still random order are layered and blended with various methods to create brilliant color and contrast.

DISTRESSED DECO

generative digital art deco
The order of art deco is nearly obliterated by stretching, smearing and shifting the image to create a distressed, illusory texture.

DECO-SPHERE

generative digital art deco
My deco-sphere frames the geometric shapes tightly into a disc with translucent radiations that suggest a spiritual emblem.

NEURO-DECO

generative digital art deco
A little playfulness here... To the deco-sphere I've added dendritic emanations. Suddenly the geometricity of art deco suggests life... ...a cell or organelle.

FIGURATIVE

generative digital art figurative
Anonymous portraiture influenced by Modigliani's flat colors and distorted features. This series is my second algorithmic composition.

FORMAL 1

generative digital art formal
This series is my first algorithmic compostion - entirely random shapes and colors. Elements from this series are the basis for the backgrounds and shape fills for all others.

FORMAL 2

generative digital art formal
Adding randomly placed horizontal and vertical bands to these otherwise purely formal compositions begins to suggest the abstract landscape compositions that I will explore.

LANDSCAPE 1

generative digital art landscape
Emotive western and mid-western vistas are generated with various algorithms that will become the foundation for my cityscapes.

POP 1

generative digital pop art
Familiar icons have their own special beauty. Many of these are straightforward, while others are stretched, distressed and smeared into an illusive, textural aesthetic.

US FLAG

generative digital pop art
The emblem of one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. And purple mountain majesties.

LETTERISM

generative digital pop art: letterism
Here the work's title is the subject, surrounded by randomly assigned letters.

OCULUS

generative digital pop art: letterism
Working on it.

STILL LIFE 1

generative digital still life art
Whimsically distorted lines celebrate the joy of familiar objects in randomly assembled compositions.

MUSIC

generative digital still life art
I let randomness play with the forms here a bit, while random color and blending algorithms deliver most of the whimsy in these playful compositions.
