Impossible images 


By using computers to combine painting and photography, I create art which is not easily rendered with either painting or photography, or with any other conventional media.

As a teenager I studied painting with Polish artist Leo Cizes and later, at New York’s Art Students League.  In the 1960s, I became interested in photography, but my art has always been about crafting pictures rather than taking pictures. 


In 1968 I, my wife Betty and I, founded Exposure Gallery on New York’s lower East side.  During the1960’s, I exhibited my work there and at other East Coast galleries. A.D. Coleman,  photography critic of the New York Times at that time described me as a technical master. My photographs from that period were one of a kind images individually crafted using bleaches, dyes, and toners. You can find examples of this work from the 1960s here.  


In 1970 I moved from Manhattan to Berkeley California.  Impressed by the amazing flora of Northern California I began crafting Oshibana, pictures made with pressed flowers. In the 1970’s, my Wilderness Cards were sold at scores of galleries throughout coastal California.


In 1985, I was introduced to digital media, which profoundly influenced my work. Where once I painted with colors, I could now paint with images. Today my work includes both black and white photography as well as digital art.  I hope you enjoy it.
