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 Qcitymetro.com at the opening of his latest show, Spirits and Places, at the Harvey B. Gantt Center.
