FLY mechismo is part of a limited edition series that I have been working on for the past few years titled "Mechanical Integrations". Inspired by nature, insects and animals along with mechanical technology, “Mechanical Integrations” are digital works of imagination that involve the blending of natural and mechanical elements to create new ways of looking at things that are otherwise familiar. The completion of this work is expressed through a process of division, reconstruction and a meticulous handling of shapes, colors and graphic patterning. The result becomes a multi-layered space. A visual interplay which blurs the boundaries of precision, creating an echo and vibration that lifts the image from it’s two dimensional surface.
The early works from this series were done directly onto the screen with very little planning other than an abstract idea for the subject. Compositions freely evolved often. Today, that free spirit remains within the process, however, the works have now progressed to a point of higher complexity that involves a stronger interest and connection to the subject. Consequently, the pieces involve a lot more planning and take much longer to complete.
FLY mechismo is a result from this new direction and progression. Like all of the “Mechanical Integration” works, FLY mechismo is only available as limited edition fine art prints. It has been and will continue to be exhibited internationally. All of the “Mechanical Integration” works are on permanent display at Acquisitions of Fine Art in Hinsdale, IL.
