I make paintings that are informed by and react to a culture defined by the digital experience. My work references familiar technology-created images—photography, X-rays, or Photoshop filters—yet is created through the meticulous application of paint alone. By referencing the digital image, my paintings walk the line between something and nothing. They play to our expectations of both the disposable contemporary image and the valued tradition of the handmade.
