A Word About Digital Painting
Digital painting: similarities to and differences from physical painting. Ways of working, 'the physically-made object', texture, character and emotion in digital painting. The advantage of its speed in the creative process. Digital painting is well suited to portraying 'the nature of the world.'

The Nature of the World vs. the World of Nature
We encounter Nature before we understand 'the nature of the world.' We seek 'the nature of the world' through art. Paradox: seeking 'the nature of the world' by regarding an abstraction of nature itself. An artists subject ceases to belong to nature. Art is an attempt to reveal the secrets of our world. 'Art is ...the communication of what is secret by what is secret'.---Kandinsky.

Why Choose Digital Painting?
Art is an attempt to express reality as it is felt in our times. I have chosen to work in Digital Painting because it is ideally suited to working through some of the major issues of contemporary existence, namely simultaneity, complexity, transparency and opacity, layering and their relation to Truth and Reality as we try to understand it.
