Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

A painting from my current body of work exploring notions of identity and humanity in the technology-driven age of the internet. I take the traditional discipline of oil painting and perhaps the most commonly represented subject in all of art history; the human body, and use digital techniques to provide a distinctly modern visual disruption to an otherwise antiquated form of expression.

I am simultaneously celebrating and questioning the role of technology in our lives and how it affects our own identities and how we perceive others.

In this painting I am combining my previously quite separate practices of collage and painting before heavily editing it Photoshop until the digital modifications are very obvious. Although the finished product is created solely through traditional oil painting techniques, the end result shows evidence of every step of the process, the original collage, the digital manipulation, and the final unifying physicality of the painted surface.
