Neil Fiertel Album of Images
Although I begin image making with a photographic file, I consider myself a digital painter and the vast majority of the creative work involves post-production from the original image, painting into it, collaging and synthesizing layer by layer, using the digital equivalent of paint and brushes along with dozens of textural and colour resources to create from an original figure something that is far from its root inspiration. The use of the model is a starting point and there is no intent to portray some aspect of the person. Thematically, the mythical notion of Aphrodite and Venus is the bedrock of my work and has been so since I began making art some fifty years ago. I print these images 3 feet or larger and many of the exquisite details are, thus, much more visible at that scale than the needed compromise for web viewing.
