The Concept My work currently circulates notions related to authenticity and the filial sensations of semantic satiation and cognitive dissonance. The visual dialect chosen, has been tailored from an aesthetic otherwise associated with the digital spectrum, but also anachronistic references and information excess. I’m particularly inspired by Baudrillard’s Simulacra and Simulation (1981), the Wachowski’s The Matrix (1999) the Descartian maxime “Cogito ergo sum” (I think, therefore I am), technological advancements, such as deep-fakes, avatars and the uncanny valley. Similarly I am also inspired by the remarkable discoveries made in the fields of quantum mechanics and the study of black holes. The Process I mainly work at one painting at a time for several months, which is mostly due to resource limitations. I start from a sketch, which I make into a digital composition. I then make a grid system on my canvas and trace the composition from my computer.
