My paintings and constructions investigate the “look” of digital information as it is transmitted, providing an overabundance of stimuli and, therefore, distractions. I create abstract works that reference conversations, usually a direct communication between two people. I wonder how a simple conversation is absorbed by people, how they’re connected, and what the conversational wavelengths would look like. The main idea is to create abstractions from conversations, as if you could see sound waves from analogue and digital devices passing through and around people. I imagine it to be very chaotic, yet beautiful.
