VIRTUAL WORLDS

Selected Work 2013 - 2018

In this series of paintings, drawings and videos, I plunder early Disney animation film, especially Bambi, reconstructing its kitsch imagery within the bounds of computer generated, geometric pattern or areas of void, empty space. My investigation is around the construction of virtual space and its propensity to exploit our emotions, to both invite and repel, within the vast remoteness, rigour and coolness of computer generated simulation. The work explores what it is to be a spectator in a digital age.
