“...Valentine is a photographer and contemporary artist who practices with multiple media, and utilizes current technology. His work emphasizes a contrast between surface and image. Careful consideration of imagery through choice of color, form and balance is subverted through handling of surface. Chosen images appear nearly perfect, but the harmonious composition is disrupted by cracked and ripped textures, which ultimately reveals the fragility between mental perception and reality...”
