About The Artwork

This piece explores the modern day phenomenon of the disintegration of the self into the digital world. The main subject is abstracted out, some parts are whole and some parts are lost, as she blows away into pixels by the torrential currents of the digital metaverse. I began the creation process digitally, sourcing digital imagery to inform composition and color. I ultimately rendered the final work in oil as a reclamation of the physical self in a physical medium.

I am a physical and digital painter, and photographer, based in Los Angeles, CA. Regardless of medium, I try to capture by the way light interacts with its environment, creating a snapshot of expressions and physical gestures. I work primarily in oils for the vibrancy and texture that they bring to a piece, and use my iPad to experiment with concepts and color palettes. I source selfies and other superficially driven images from social media as reference material for my paintings, which subvert the artificiality of those moments by emphasizing immersive atmospheric elements such as very hot sun or a poolside breeze. I want the viewer to remember the physical sensations of a moment created by the natural world, rather than filters on their phones. My aesthetic is influenced by everything from Betty & Veronica comics to vintage swimwear campaigns, and I'm inspired by artists including David Hockney, Roy Lichtenstein, Cindy Sherman and Alex Colville.
