Animali Fantastici: The Direct Experience of Being Alive
These large images become invitations to see the book as I do. They embody my cross over beyond the mechanized routine of reading and reason by arousing a sense of wonder at the world. In the cross over is the blurred boundary between the real story of the book and the mind reading it. The boundary between the real and the imaginary. This boundary is not to replace the people who have been lost, but a hope to embrace the direct experience of being alive.
These images come together when scanned into a computer, then blown up and printed on a large-scale digital printer. Then I draw over them with different materials.
