Artist Statement:


    We are increasingly asked to input our time, energies, and ideas into the computer-driven environment. This painting is from a series of works that use details from the ubiquitous computer interface (as a starting point) and reverses the usual “input/output” process (physical to digital) by taking from the digital and creating the physical. Giving a physicality to images that normally exist only “onscreen” we can change context, and challenge the way we look at (or look past) the digital visual environment. Changes in scale, and the textural nature of paint on board, also add to the disenfranchisement of the original images.
