Artist Statement

      I am interested in exploring painting and its relationship to the present moment. My artworks are made from many different tools and techniques to explore the artifacts that emerge from the exchange between digital and physical systems. I believe it is inevitable to examine the ways in which digital interfaces transform our ability to understand this vital medium.

 

      In my recent work, I complete digital paintings through an experimental method of large format printing onto a hand-painted textured surface. The digital components of these paintings are constructed and rendered using open-source 3D computer graphics software.

 

      My multilayered works use oil, acrylic and a resist medium to create collaged paintings by cutting out sections of the top layers. This process imitates a photoshop image layer system made of paint, capturing moments where digital tools reshape painterly spaces.
