Statement

My recent paintings are combinations of recycled images from past works with new spaces pulled from the Internet or my own photos. The process is evolving from my former approach of focusing on creating a single new landscape. Instead, these landscapes, along with snippets of still life’s or other idealized imagery, are becoming secondary to the overall make up of the composition. They are chosen on the superficial notion of their color gradient or their contrasting elements to the composition at large. I then interrupt these images with geometric shapes cutting across the painting, pulling the composition back and forth. The end results reflect the way we consume most images today, as edited flashes of ideals feeding the shortened attention span of the consumer.
