Ty Bowman • Art Statement

My work is about perception, memory and imagination both conscious and unconscious. Memories are like shadows of past experience cast on the wake of our lives. Memories displace time by taking us back to the incisive moment when they first cut their tracks.

Silhouettes in my work are a metaphor for how we project our own ideas onto a work of art, other people or anything else in the world including the world. Other times they act as a shadow of the self holding and suppressing memories and secrets of which the conscious mind is not fully aware.

I use computer technology as an instrument for the imagination to question, play and create in a way that heightens our experience of life.
