Metamorphose, 2019, oil and acrylic paint on canvas
My works refer to the omnipresence of the internet as well as the global invasion of what is called “augmented reality” into daily life, natural environments, and into the way we look at paintings. My suggestion is defamiliarization – to render familiar things strangely – to question the illusionistic realm of painting as much as the one of the computer desktop. The series Digital Water is referring to typical computer desktop interfaces and encompasses the alchemical search for visual keys to a casual “user experience“. Metamorphose shows computer generated shapes and refers to Ovid as well as states of change.
