Abstract/Artist Statement

In my current painting series, Miscommunication, I observe the ever-increasing presence of domestic technology and its all-too-often ill effects. For example, texting has become a world-wide craze. But since this efficiency has become available, it has become almost normal for people to choose to text in a situation even if speaking to the party were a feasible option. I feel that people’’s dependency on technology serves to denigrate the physical aspect of relationships. However, throughout my research, I realized that most technology and communication companies claim that their products help to enrich relationships between people. In my works, I chose to use versions of these slogans as titles placed in direct juxtaposition with images of people using forms of technology and losing their physical selves in the process. It is my hope that people will see my work and feel compelled to take a look at the quantity of technology use in their own lives and to more carefully preserve the physical and personal relationships with other people.
