Artist Bio:
I am a Belgian photographer/digital artist living and working in Long Island City, NY.
For over thirty years I have been shooting editorial and advertising work that runs the gamut of still life, fashion and celebrity photography.
Away from the rigors of my commercial assignments I have focused on projects reflecting my social and political interests as well as the domain of digital art where some of my 2D works have given birth to 3D creations as well as video art.

My 2D work is represented in Belgium by Attitude Brussels Gallery and in the US it has been extensively curated and included in exhibitions such as BWAC in Brooklyn, Plaxall Galleries in LIC, Pierro Gallery at Seaton Hall University in South Orange, NJ and Creative Art Workshop at Yale University in New Haven, CT.

Thanks to the courtesy and cooperation of Plaxall Inc. my 3D thermoformed work has been featured for three consecutive years at the Anable Basin Event Space in Long Island City.

My "Dizzy Mickey" video art was show at THE WRONG (BIENNALE) / HOMEOSTATIS LAB PAVILLON curated from Prague, Czech Republic.
As reviewed by Chris Hampton of the NY Times:
"Counting its viewership in the millions, The Wrong just might be the world's largest art biennale ??? the digital world's answer to Venice."

Artist Statement:
As a visual artist living in the digital age I am fascinated by the domain of Digital Art where the few thousand pixels image of the original maker is subverted to such transformation, that its original content or genre will only be serving as a construct to a new physicality.
My imagery originates in the raw data of an image that is manipulated and distorted via non-photographic software so as to reappear as a new layer of pixels and create an abstraction leading to the re-interpretation of the visual imprinted in one's memory.
"Every act of creation is first of all an act of destruction"
Pablo Picasso
