Thom Harvey Kline
I entered the Vancouver School of Art in 1969 to pursue my continuing photography work. Here I was introduced to sculpture and found the world of 3 Dimensions. BCIT led to a career in the building environment working with both the oldest and largest major architectural firms in Vancouver. Retiring from architecture in 2004, I returned to my first love, the 2 dimension world of photographic arts. I continue to take courses at Emily Carr University of Art & Design. Have travelled to Holland to study the old masters. Recently starting to work in steel sculptures.
I use digital photography to create photomontages that capture images to inform and entertain. The composition, colour and content of the individual photos become the components of the montage. I obtain original images on location or in studio. The commitment is in Photoshopping - spending time masking, modifying, layering, merging and mixing filtered images together, sometimes one pixel at a time, see "Portfolio". The risk is in the final work, meeting my demands and intentions. Does it inform, inspire and / or draw the viewer in?

Go to "Thyme (Gives Courage)" to review my book with more Photomontage images.
