Tim  Stone

“I am creating a painterly language emphasizing the hybridization
between our physical and digital experiences. I physically replicate,
imitate, and mimic digital languages to express how confusing and lost
it can be to operate in a world that is both super connected and
isolating, mediated through a screen. The algorithmic ways of
processing information through coding and keywords seems rather
abstract to me, even unintentional or misunderstood. My work sutures
digital efficiency and painterly inefficiency through physical marks and
colors that are rambunctious, fiery, and ambiguous in their affect. There
is tension between the ordinary and the superlative, and between what
is natural and artificial. I am examining how bemusedly liminal our
physical and digital spaces have become.”
