Dreamdistort is, quite simply, imagination sneaking into the back door of reality. Pure instinct and a chaotic inspiration cause Anthony to ignore the mundane ideas of concept and specificity of design, and create work with no ties to suggestion or persuasion. He ignores the norm and the expected. A slight tweaking of perceptions and endless brainstorming are the tools at work within the images he produces; worlds and visions non-existent in our limited experience until they are allowed to flee from his mind. Using mediums ranging from fixed objects and illustrations to digital and traditional film photographic processes, encompassing nearly ten years experience, he feels an urge to alter in order to create. Never leaving an image-no matter how seemingly perfect-untouched by his hand. Forms are brought to life; human bodies expose themselves for what they are and are not. The life within the posture and mass tweaked to perfection. Infinite possibilities and realities exist in the images. The world is imported and altered by Anthony and re-placed open for all to see, re-composed and layered with new and old meaning. Manipulated. The image, no matter how improbable, is the new reality.
Since 2001, his works have been featured in various galleries, auctions, as well as websites, cd artwork, dvd packaging, movie/film production and props, fashion shows, and magazines articles. His individual participations have also included solo and group exhibitions, speaking to design classes and students, charity fundraisers, and club openings.
A professional graphic designer by trade, his works include interface development, courseware graphic support, audio engineering and DVD authoring.
