Artist Statement: My art is about technology, it’s about the rise of its capabilities and its place in our life. Technology is not the subject of the art, but the process and medium. I use Technology to create colour and form which are meant to evoke positive emotions. The harmony between colour and shape is something I think that can be best created with technology. The shapes and the colours perfectly symmetrical, vibrant, even and smooth. I contrast this with faint nods to natural techniques that where traditionally made with age old processes but now can be made with technology. Spray painting and watercolour painting are used looking back at fine art and using a hint of the textures that they create to form familiarity within the picture.
I like digital art because it can go viral in its original form. Viewing it on Instagram, viewing it on your smartphone, you are looking at it in its purest state. It’s only when it is printed that it then becomes a copy of that artwork. I want everyone to see my work through technology; you don’t have to go to a gallery to access my art, and it can be viewed on the internet just seconds after I have created it. You could see a new piece of art daily right there on your phone, I feel like it is a constant source of positivity. My art is supposed to represent the good of technology.
