Preston Buchtel

The piece exhibited is a digitally assembled photographic collage, which is from a bodyof work I’ve been developing for the past few years.
I began exploring digital photo manipulation in an effort to see what it had to offer me and my work, and how I might use it as a medium for expression. I also wanted to find a way of working with it as intuitively and with the same immediacy that my paintingsand physical collages offered.
What I find most interesting about this medium, is the ability it offers to layer multiple images and fragments, and control their degree and manner of integration with oneanother, thus offering many possibilities for the visual creation, destruction, and manipulation of space, time, form, meaning, narrative, and perception, through which new totalities can be constructed.
