Statement

I construct imagery for 2D works and new media projects that are informed by experience, technology and memory. Painting in layers, I use masking techniques to jumble formal qualities such as abstraction and realistic representation. I source imagery from mapping platforms, public API sources and social media networks as a way to trace the effect technology has on the construct of perception. The combination of divergent elements suggests a pluralistic reality bridging the historical framework of painting, self and the influence of technology on image making. Recent projects in programming use API data and frameworks to address discovery where simulation wags reality.
