The content of my work centers on stories of land use, environmental disasters, and the constant temptation of escape through amusement. My ideas are mediated by the algorithms of search engines- which allows for numerous perspectives on a topic. Seemingly endless digital images are combined into the finite, fixed frame of a painting fracturing into abstract patterns. I am driven to sample images as if they are sounds or film clips- jumbling and scrambling and waiting for something new to emerge – which feels like a kind of magic. The process teaches me how to decipher the complexity and flow of information in the moment and to explore webs and networks filtered through technology that exist outside mainstream narratives.
