Red Laser Statement For years, I've only been interested in shooting at night. For someone who began as a painter, the laser light is a substitution for paint. In the Red Laser Series I take painting with light literally, employing playful techniques to create incongruously dramatic, even disturbing scenes. Where's the play? It's in the joy of creation, though these creations are contradictory. Is it divine illumination or damnation? Is it a fire that can get out of control – or a fairyland? So overall, there is a complexity of feeling brought up by this group of images: scary and alluring, both a warning and an invitation; sometimes expressing fear and danger and sometimes expressing joy and wonder. I encourage the contradictions with the Red Laser series.
