The Ephemera images have grown into a series: an exploration of transience expressed through the interplay of layers of image elements. The digital darkroom confers incredible powers of layering elements, in which each element may interact with the others in an endless variety of ways. Often the image itself will determine the interplay, independent of any control by the artist. I feel I do not so much create these images as they create themselves for me. They often take on a life of their own and I am merely acting at their behest.
