Chris Lord, New York Member Since June 2010 Artist Statement My name is Chris Lord and I am the Head Pixie and Pixel Pusher at Pixielated Pixels. I am British born and bred but New York City based and I first picked up a camera almost 50 years ago. After all these years I am finally happy creating the images I always dreamed of. Shooting film and printing in the darkroom never gave me as much pleasure as powerful computers and Adobe's wonderful software. I began working with computers in the mid 1980s, now I have become confident and competent with the tools at hand and feel that the world has finally caught up with my eclectic artistic vision. Intense and powerful color and a somewhat surreal take on reality is the way my mind works and I enjoy producing images to match. "Reality is a somewhat overrated thing" has become my mantra and I hope you enjoy where it leads me. If not I'll just blame it on the pixies!
