Just Published - Mac Titmus and the Art of Digital Painting by Karin Lazarus in CSA Journal Published
Describing my creative process is difficult. People are most comfortable when they're able to categorize into processes or disciplines. My work doesn't fit easily into traditional classifications. I see it as a fusion between painting, photography and computer technology. The resulting digital medium gives me the ability to express my thoughts as they occur and the flexibility to change them as I watch my art take on a life of it’s own.
Through the use of a graphics tablet and a stylus I use my computer much like a traditional visual artist uses their brush and canvas. Saturated color, lyrical movement, forceful line, and complex imagery are just a few of the adjectives that have been used to describe my work.
I offer my work as a personal expression. What you take from it is subjective. Your vision is your experience and the only one with any validity. It contradicts my purpose to offer explanations and prefer to leave it to interpretation.
Mac's work is currently on display in galleries across Long Island in individual, group and juried shows.
