Artist Statement

Title: 04.10

from a series of digital paintings started in 2015 where I took small micro sections of unsolicited pictures sent to me on social media, via DMs, to create abstract works of art. The series of paintings has since evolved into using micro areas from zoom calls, google hangouts and other various video conferencing platforms over the last year, these micro areas I extract from the video I then use to create custom paint brushes which serve as my palette for the paintings created.
