About the author:
The world presents itself and occasionally, I take the time to observe. There are times when the observation takes on the form of obsession, at other times it is the casual encounter. These moments become photographs. Believing that the normal needs to be elevated by exaggeration or simplification, I apply my skills to interpret these instances.
My work, since 1998, has focused on computer manipulated photographs.
I've exhibited in group and one person shows since 1969; exhibiting photographs, painting and prints. The prints have been exhibited extensively through 147 exhibitions, primarily in US University, College, and Community galleries. The exhibitions have been in; BC, Alberta, Ontario and in 31 American States.
Also an exhibitor in 12 virtual web galleries, associated with academic conferences focused on digital imaging in Australia, China, Thailand, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States.
In 2006, I began publishing my completed projects as books, and have completed thirteen books to date, with three others in development to be published in 2010.
Born and educated in Alberta, I have been living in Victoria, on Canada's West Coast, since 1984.
Secrets . . . from the museums of Paris
Raymond St. Arnaud
It is not uncommon that a child will play more with the box, than with the contents. In my case I enjoyed and derived great benefit from seeing great art close up. But, I also had a great fascination with the structures that housed the art in Paris, and the secrets that lay in open view.
Those secrets take the form of form, pattern, color and detail. Using these components, one can create a new reality; a reality that can only be seen through isolation and exaggeration.
Two other themes of photographs have been published separately as, Random Walks . . . Paris and as Sortie . . . The Running Man
