The way we record and disseminate information in the twenty-first century, from Facebook to e-book, is grossly affected by the existence of the Internet. Similarly, the information that we decide to record – the historical remnants of the early decades of this century, both political and cultural – have been invariably molded by how technology has touched our culture’s lives. My paintings and artist books exist as the next form of historical document in observing and recording digital pop
In terms of translating my artist statement from arts-speak to layman terms: I make Internet paintings and, on occasion, artist books that cope with the book’s relationship to the Internet. The work focuses on how Internet culture, especially American-centric Internet culture, changes the lexicon and how we record history in the twenty-first century. This means (to paraphrase a professor I know) occasional saucy content by way of foul language; this also means discussing uncomfortable topics in current affairs. But, even more importantly than that, it means focusing on — and abstracting — words and typography until the shapes become meaningless, not entirely unlike logging onto Facebook or Twitter and attempting to read what others might write.
Reproductions sold on SOCIETY 6 range from $15-50+ depending on size/type of print.
Original paintings, drawings, and book art range from $100-1500, depending on media and size.
Commission work and book repair will vary depending on project, but general rule of thumb is $50/hour plus cost of materials.
