The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.
I construct these paintings visually and technically to initiate a place of interactivity and experience with the work in order to examine the dynamic potential of a static object. The paintings themselves are conceived by involving elements of cultural and geographic surroundings, as well as elements of digital representations culled from vast online sources to my own camera. I then conflate these elements by interposing them within a computer environment. The resulting visual construct and condition is then re-introduced and manifested by way of various painting languages and techniques as its own object/condition, or painting. A painting that introduces another set of fluctuating conditions, that presents itself as a dynamic object based in the qualitative realm of real-time perception. The use of dispersed particles of paint, visa vie an airbrush and spray gun, serve as an analogy to pixels and bits of information that constitute representations of contemporary reality. As a result, I intend to tie a reality constructed and modeled from representations and the virtual world of pictorial illusion with the physical interactive space created by the painting.
