new work: everything is fine
Work in progress. Digital illustration hand renderings composited with deconstructed frames, canvas, ink, graphite, staples
During quarantine, each canvas was stripped of its face revealing pigmented stains, tears, stray threads, fragments and holes. Digitally altered with chance and choice filters and effects, a 12-second human attention span loop is constructed as a persona to examine perceived realities and subjective states of being.
Meant to be viewed as simultaneous projections, the raw skin as protagonist absorbs uttered sound from masked performers ad infinitum, investigating absurdity, emotional contagion, episodic memory and semantic satiation.
Each frame is an individual fragment of a deconstructed and discarded drawing, painting, or sculpture. Photographed and digitally manipulated by both choice and chance, the “real” image of the whole is unknown—each captured layer speaks to a temporary frequency, a momentary yet infinite slice of one’s being.
