“My entire life has been an experiment with a variety of creative outlets and media. However, I think I am at heart a frustrated wanna-be painter!
My first love was film and fantasy, and I used to draw/sketch and thought I would go into art/design. Then music hit me and I was compelled to follow that to the Berklee College of Music. I started writing songs and finding my voice in that, releasing 2 CD’s of original music. When digital photography and Photoshop came my way, my first love came back to me. Now I can take photos and push them more into the painting aesthetic that I could never achieve in my drawing.”

German photographer Robert Schlaug’s series Limited Area. Using digital manipulation, he drags pixels of color across (or, more often, up and down) to the edges, creating walls and cliff-like effects. Schlaug says he is interested in “Raising awareness in times of total sensory overload” as well as “Isolation or in distinct contrast to the surroundings—suddenly developed a unique form of language and suprisingly gets an aesthetic quality. The banal becomes the particular.”
