Artist Statement: I am haunted by the future. I question the way we cruise the Internet for information, like addicts looking for our next fix. Our thinking adapts to binary logic. My work unpacks the aesthetics of this information culture—one that exists in abstractions and virtual space. I use the computer to research, process, and consolidate, to create baroque geometries, to scramble and recontextualize information. I transform the digital into the tangible materiality of paint.
