Abstract Art – Mostly
My name is Don Gradner. I’m an artist working in New Mexico. I work with a broad assortment of materials and tools. I make my art with paint, pencils, crayons, markers, ink, watercolor, paper, digital camera, Photoshop and many other tools and media. These elements allow me to play with the relationships between line, color, shape, tone and texture.
I make images by drawing, painting, creating collage, scanning and photographing anything which has interesting lines, textures, shapes or colors. Then multiple images are combined on my computer using Photoshop to cut, paste, layer and blend into the final piece of art. I also do some straight, realistic photography.
