abstract 520$a Abstract This collection consists of digital artword and poetry from artist Randy Jones, who provides the following statement about the work featured in the Digital Dreams collection:lb My digital paintings reflect what I respond to. There is joy in the arrangement and design elements and colors within a composition. And there is beauty of varied shape and form. Familiar, comfortable objects like fruit or books express the fragility of the moment, but also becomes something eternal and timeless frozen forever in the picture. "Durability," "immortality." And symbolism. Things I respond to--all objects have significance. Personal and profound symbols. The more we look, the more we see. Most importantly we see that transient beauty can become transformed consciously and subconsciously. It is awareness of response: what do objects on a shelf become for us? Symbols, memories, expressions, feelings. Together with the highest level of my ability the still-life objects in my paintings make my work meaningful. Most of all, my work is therapy for me and an essential part of my recovery. Whoever you may be reading my poems and viewing my pictures I want to thank you, and I hope you will be please and find something worth learning and considering. Much of this new art was created when my life partner, Wilbur T. was diagnosed with lung cancer, ultimately passing away in February of this year after a lengthy nursing center stay. My work covers a range of topics: love, loss, art, memories and finally, hope. Perhaps, you too may find a bit of yourself here.

bioghist altrender Administrative History 545 Administrative History:
Randy Jones was born and grew up in Columbus, Ohio, and has been making art all of his life. After receiving a B.F.A. from the Columbus College of Art & Design, Jones worked for a number of years as an advertising artist. As a fine artist, he chaired and organized "A Digital Salon" in Columbus, participated in the Collectors Gallery at the Columbus Museum of Art, NewCAT in Cleveland, an art auction, several private galleries, a card shop, and four solo exhibits in a library. He participated in several galleries locally in Ohio, and his work was shown by Eovia Inc at the Apple Computer Expo in Paris, France. After many years developing his own digital art style on a Macintosh computer and coming up with a name for himself (Digital Dream Studios), Jones is currently seeking the best market for his work--whether through continued gallery representation or publishing. He has been a digital artist for twenty three years.

Digital Dreams: Art
Scope and Contents
Randy Jones provides the following statment about the art featured in this collection: I being with my Macintosh computer and scanner. From there, I scan bits of cloth, patterns, and small objects such as leaves or pieces of fruit (by lifting up the scanner lid and putting objects under a show box on top of the glass). Once scanned into a program called "Photoshop," I fine tune the textures and colors and sometimes make "clipping paths" to export into two 3d programs, "Carrara, Bryce and Vue." There, 3d models are created and scans are used as texture maps, and extruded objects. Finally, after the 3D scenes are rendered, they're brought back into "Photoshop and Painter," tweaked, and printed from an archival Epson photo printer. Themes in my art are still-life and landscape--exploring texture, shape, light, shadow and reflections.
