I use QR code generated on the internet to deconstruct images in photo shop I then turn the images which I use and turn them into oil paintings.
My work is about the relationship between technology and realism. I begin most of my work in photoshop where I stitch together digital images, QR code, blocks of colour as well as photographs that I have taken. This process allows me to move much more control of my compositions and allows me to move elements of the painting around on a fluid and instinctive manner. Once I am happy with my composition I take my work into painting. Oil paint gives me the opportunity to have a much more personal relationship to my paintings I really believe in the poetry of the marks that can be made on the canvas with oil paint. Although my work is about the contemporary experience of technology I am inspired by a range of different artists from a range of different eras. For instance the way I build up the layers in my work is heavily influence by my study of the Flemish old masters at the same time I am influence by the way contemporary artists such as Benjamin Edward’s utilize code and technological symbols in their work.
