This is a group of digital art pieces created on the computer and output on canvas. The illustration below shows the progression of how a word or phrase start out and then the pieces are digitally manipulated, cropped, cut, pasted, collaged, and reasembled to create a final version that is the abstract essense in my view of the word as a finished product. The process can take hours and manipulated up to 500 times until the final version of the artwork is achieved. In the course of working on the final version the versions can produce digital dirt or color changes that when blown up cause the final image that started out to be black & white to have color. Use of layers and transparency cause shapes and new colors to form and in some cases the letter forms disappear completely.
