Drawing or Painting with the camera and “cross pollination”

Here are some of my latest photos.  These are photos of my paintings.  I am “cross pollinating” between media. My work extends this idea of cross pollination to include interaction between of works 2 dimensions and 3 dimensions. In this case I am taking another step in the interaction between materials by using the camera as a drawing tool.  It is a tool for the capture of something fleeting, something which I have noticed and feel is deserving of longer contemplation.

Anne Ellegood uses the term ‘cross pollination’ in reference to Rosalind Krauss’ observation of wide ranging use of media and experimentation within and around the traditional definition of sculpture. Rather than artistic works being limited to one material, the definition of sculpture has expanded to include a wide variety of works.
