Mixed Media on Wood Panel
My work looks to explore how technology has changed how we view and interpret information. It is more likely for someone to experience a work of art on a computer screen instead of in person and because of this, the viewer’s experience of art isn’t the original piece but a digitally altered version of the art, In my painting, I use a collage technique to distort, flatten and hide details in the painting to create images that look similar to that of a computer glitch. The clitch itself represents the awareness of the digital medium at use.
I received my BFA from The Ohio State University with a focus in drawing and painting in 2013. In August 2016, I will be attending The Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, where I will be pursuing my MFA in painting.
