As an artist I seek to explore through the medium of paint the world around me. Living in a society of the digital age, it is becoming more difficult to distinguish between the boundaries of the physical world and the digital. This blurred boundary line has brought about questions concerning the construction of identity. Through the medium of paint I am exploring the concept of self as it relates to social media. The process of painting provides myself the time needed to slow down the fast paced world, allowing reflection and connections to be made during the representation of my subjects. Traditional portrait painting is responding to the application of new technologies, which is reshaping our understanding, and reading of the face. My work deals with the transitory nature of self-perception and specifically questions digital media’s relationship to personal identity.
