LaRoach (aka: Louise A. Roach)
I am a visionary conceptual artist having a dialogue with the existential. Utilizing digital manipulation, I synthesize my original photography with images of classic art and architecture, bits and bots from my travels, and remnants of the visual illusion. Transcending the literal, I play with time/culture/space convergence, arriving at a poetic ephemera that owes its existence to mere pixels of light, dwelling only on my computer.
My art is birthed as a digital entity (and for the most part that is how it will remain), traveling its lifetime over internet pathways. But if you are so inclined to beget one of my images into the physical realm, prints are thoughtfully available through several online sources.
My imagery is also available for licensing as book covers, CD music artwork, or website illustrations.
