Wally Gilbert
Signed and framed print of "Stair #2 - Greece 2005", Digital Image - Lambda Print mounted on Dibond, UV absorbing lamination, 27" H x 18" W
This signed photograph, by Brickbottom Artists Association artist, Wally Gilbert, is of a staircase in Greece, but is reminiscent of the interior of a conch shell. Wally Gilbert has had a varied career -- originally a scientist (he was awarded a Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1980), he also became an entrepreneur and a venture capitalist, and then an artist. He describes his work in his artist statement: "I make many images by hand on the computer. The computer simply holds the intermediate forms as I superpose the many layers I create to build up the image. The images begin in black and white, and then I color them in the computer. I generate these colors either by accessing the colors available or, in a more complicated fashion, by using the ability to change the global input-output functions for each color and intensity separately. When the layers containing the colored images interact with each other, still more color patterns appear. The computer is a digital workspace, driven by my hand and eye."
