Mark Millstein, U.S.A.
Rosy Oak Kite, 2000
digital image, ink jet print on paper,
bamboo, string
40 x 21 x 3 inches

Kite design is the way in which Mark Millstein combines his passion for computer art with his love for the ocean shore and great open fields. The computer provides the core studio space for image section, editing, and processing. The imagery for the kite is composed from several sources, such as collected items, drawn or torn paper shapes and variations on those shapes. Using a flat-bed scanner as a camera, small objects, including leaves and shoreline debris, are digitized and brought into the work area. In creating the images, Millstein is looking for resonance of color, detail, and texture as well as dynamic flying form. All of the kites can actually fly. On the rare occasion of a crash, the bamboo allows the kite to bounce rather than crack. [End Page 474]

Richard Wright, U.S.A.
Reclamation #1, 2000
quadtone giclèe
10 x 15 inches

The imagery Richard Wright creates would not be possible without the computer, but its use is not necessarily obvious or visible in the final image. Wright attempts to move digital imagery into a subtle, elegant arena. The computer can carry you into uncharted territory but in the end, Wright lands somewhere close to home by restraining the technology and opening up its true potential as a "plastic" art. Reclamation #1 is part of a series of work that demonstrates a deliberate inversion of the advertising space. Billboards and signs are captured on film with an antiquated camera, scanned into pixels, and retro-fitted with synthetically created skies. [End Page 475]

Cynthia Beth Rubin, U.S.A.
Synogogue de Bruxelles, 1999
digital print
24 x 40 inches

Using photographs of actual sites as a point of departure, Rubin molds a composite image of various fragments pertaining to a recognizable reality. She intermingles the identifiable with fluid patterns and impressions. Her work focuses on the act of remembering a single place but also addresses the range of complex thoughts, emotions, and ideas that accompany the physical experience within space. [End Page 476]

Robin Doherty, N. Ireland
Untitled One, 2001
black and white digital print

Robin Doherty is an artist living and working in Belfast, Ireland. Doherty's work ranges from photography to sculpture/ installation. Although Doherty's work crosses the lines between many media, there is one aspect that unites all of it: the search for self-knowledge. This "knowledge" incorporates the intellect and conscious reasoning as well as metaphysical knowledge based on emotions and intuition. It attempts to address the unexplainable and inexpressible aspects of the primal and universal "content" of the human psyche.
