Studio Crops and Fragments begins with the mining of my archive of paintings and drawings. I photograph small sections close up, break them down into their component parts in Photoshop, and reassemble layers into new compositions. As I work on my computer, I make hundreds of iterations of each image, adding and subtracting elements, changing colors, moving pieces around. Some changes are slight, some are drastic, but each image influences the next. These images are then digitally printed on canvas and reworked with oil and acrylic paint. This reintroduces the materiality of paint into the work and confuses what is digital and what is painted. The resulting works are a kind of snapshot of my mind and studio, with the people who influence me, tools, paint, palettes, works of art, and text combining to create new, imaginary spaces.
