Art Description

Painting: Oil and Beeswax on Wood.

This body of work has been constructed through a process of experimentation with a series of traditional baroque-inspired themes, spliced together with over-painted elements associated with digital-based imagery. The traditional elements have been appropriated from sources within the Dutch, Spanish, Flemish and Italian baroque painting canon, combined and juxtaposed to create a series of miniature tondo portraits. The digital elements overlaying these have been inspired by a variety of sources (C.G.I., games, image manipulation software, glitch-art, etc.).
I chose some of the key examples of baroque portraiture to test out my ideas on. The title 'Decomposition' refers obliquely to the break down of digital imagery over time and the resulting effect that this has on the image.
