Statement

In a simple sense I just paint portraits. Portraiture experienced through the disjointed lens of internet culture.

In my work I want to show the growing disconnection of the hyper connected digital world. The images I reference I get from multiple social media sites then I deconstruct and reconstruct them into familiar, but distinctly other imagery.

Further the application of impasto layers of paint is uniquely analogue that cannot be recreated digitally and serves to reinforce the deconstruction of modern images.
