Neighborhood: Bushwick

ARTIST STATEMENT: My work is inspired by Western civilization’s simultaneous complexity of technological advances and imminent decline from lack of natural resources. I combine video and painting with appropriated news footage and electronic data, removing any distinctions or boundaries between them. These “videopaintings” underline the impermanence and constant bombardment of transmitted information to a society that is fixated on alternately obsessing over or ignoring electronic messages.
