As it relates to working with Adobe Photoshop and Corel Photo-Paint these art pieces translate into utilization of these digital manipulation tools to generate images that stem from the psyche or subconscious vs. conventional touch-up or enhancement. They reflect the creative process that transforms representational objects/subjects into non-representational ones, which fall into the genre of abstractionism bordering on abstract expressionism. Through scanning of real objects/subjects and photographs of the same, utilizing various features of Adobe Photoshop ... such as solarization, wave, hue/saturation, inversion, equalization, extrusion, radial blur, twirl, trace contour, median, rotation, flip, cut/copy/paste, superimposition and crop, then creating montages (for most) ... the transformations emerge as a byproduct of the already mentioned psyche or subconscious. Again, the creative process is at work, and at the forefront.
