Work in Progress

The image below is the first of three that I’ll be using for a planned installation:

BioWall 1

The completed images (entirely digital) will be projected onto the walls at approximately 8′ tall- large enough for the individual pixels to be visible.

Unlike previous works involving similar imagery, I’m shooting for something slightly beyond the aesthetic here.  The images deliberately evoke traditional painterly qualities, i.e. gestural markmaking and smeared paint (the latter of which is simulated), as well as equally traditional subject matter- figures and fruit, in particular.  Nonetheless, the images and their presentation will be emphatically immaterial.  Briefly, materiality is the true subject of the piece- my own conflicted relationship with it, and its ambivalent status in contemporary art.

I’ll be posting the other images as they’re completed; I welcome critique!
