Warped Paintings

With a background in the arts and philosophy, I am deeply interested in the use of art as tangible, acting theories of knowledge.
The work falls into a type of post analog, digital as manual process art. With my Warped paintings, deeply textured mark making adapts to the warped, skewed and distorted imagery it depicts. The barite and calcium carbonate medium acts to emphasize the thickly stretched brush strokes, as if the painting itself has been warped in Photoshop.
The process involves using the reference of a digitally distorted image of a prior painting- therefore the work begins and ends with the hand, having a digital process in-between. The distortions are dutifully imitated through the use of very large brushes and mark making techniques.
