Doner Projects

About Jonathan Doner

I am a digital artist and a feral, no make that theoretical, psychologist. My digital constructions are abstract, expressionistic, symbolic, and even occasionally representational. Some might say my theoretical writings are much the same.

The digital medium is still in a developmental phase as an artistic vehicle, similar to the state of photography in the mid-20th century. Though I am drawn to the medium by its plasticity and variety of applicable techniques, my work is definitely about artistry rather than computer wizardry. Creating an image is a multistage interaction between my own artistic sensibilities and the results of myriad manipulations. Each image begins as a digital painting of color and form. This foundation is sculpted and transformed depending on my inclinations. More advanced computer techniques are then applied, much as a potter applies various glazes. Through trial-and-error and guided evolution, the work gradually finds a unique conclusion. This may reflect my original intent, but quite often the process follows its own trajectory, resulting in the discovery of unintended consequences.  I find this sort of outcome to be particularly rewarding.
