Ask Michael B. Platt to explain his work, and the Washington, D.C., artist hesitates for a moment.

He has been described as a “printmaker” (he prefers the phrase image maker), someone who takes photography and manipulates it to create something that’s entirely different – not exactly a photo, not exactly a collage, and certainly not a painting or drawing.
Platt calls it “computer-generated imagery.”

“If Romare Bearden was alive today, he’d use Photoshop,” Platt explained to at the opening of his latest show, Spirits and Places, at the Harvey B. Gantt Center.
