Identity Crisis! A stack of dice is an imposter on the chessboard. Or is it the pawn who’s pretending?
The dice are taken from the previous dice image. I just stacked them up.
The pawn is done using a “lathe” object, by defining a curve and rotating it around the central point. The […]

Technical description:
The dice are made from an “intersection” of a sphere and a square. This includes only the parts that are enclosed by both the shapes. You can see the result here. The dots are smaller “M&M” shapes, cut into the faces and colored black.
The dice are all copies of the same […]

This is a clear allegory of something. Maybe it’s the pursuit of freedom, that always seems to escape. Maybe it’s death and resurrection, a light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel kind of thing. Maybe it’s just a cool butterfly in a very non-organic setting, a contrast between natural and manufactured. Does that work, with a butterfly […]

Copper pipes against a metal wall.
The wall was painted green, but has now rusted and deteriorated. The sheets of roofing were once all aligned and straight. This place has been neglected for some time now.
The pipes are no longer shiny copper, but are more of a brown color - but so […]

Fractal (ish) star-thingy. It’s more of a pattern than a fractal, but it fits most in that category among my artwork.
The smaller stars around the edges are reflections. There are six slightly-angled mirrors back behind, that produce those images. Another mirror behind the camera, combined with the six in front, […]

The galaxy was a true challenge for my computer. A real galaxy has somewhere around 100 billion stars. I can’t afford enough memory to generate that kind of picture. This image was a make-do with 100,000 stars in the galaxy. A fog cloud helps fill out the swirl of stars. The […]

This is highly abstract. The title is the impression I got after seeing the final result. It is a symbol of upward motion, perhaps depicting some kind of improvement in something. I don’t really know. What do you think?
This is my first image completely generated with Photoshop. I generated noise […]

This is one of my better pictures, in my opinion. Of course, being the artist, my opinion is the one that counts. The rest is up to interpretation by the observer. If you like it, good.
It’s an impression of the dark nights in the North, with flickering lights in the […]

Well, maybe not that amazed. There is more art to see. I have a long list of ideas I’ve been gathering for a while, and now I’m doing them. These are definitely an expression of ME. […]
