Genre:Portraiture;


ARTIST STATEMENT: The place of the painted portrait in the post- photography, postmodern age is ever-changing. In portrait painting, a connection between artist and subject is created by the act of building an image stroke by stroke. This connection is unusual in a time of virtual reality and high-speed, mediated experience. There is much to explore in the question of who is portrayed and how. I am interested in the multifaceted nature of portraiture in the digital age. By combining painting, performance, interactivity, photography, a conceptual frame, and a digital presentation, I seek to challenge schisms in artistic and social understanding.
