John Creighton

These prints are made digitally, mainly on the ipad, using several apps, including art rage and procreate.
Sometimes I export the images to another computer for further work in other software before returning them to the ipad to continue. This process can get quite involved and allows me to build complex and rich layers and textures, working freely and intuitively.
The pieces are involved with exploring the process and structure of appearance which emerges when several pictorial elements interact, and are enriched by accident and impulse.I am interested in the poetry of relationships which this process brings about. A poetry which is by turn allusive, illusive and ambiguous.
