My work explores gesture, focusing on everyday communication and interaction. In our digital milieu, our nonverbal gestures have been reconfigured online - through texting and mass imagery. In this modality; people and things intertwine, temporality and movement are unhinged, we are both more connected and more alienated - through a plethora of channels and networks.
Gesture is examined in my installation through the concepts of subjectivity and the screen. The work queries where mediated digital and analogue modes of art production intersect and diverge - in terms of layering, light, colour, time and space. Layering disrupts the image - light makes colour on the screen, whereas colour makes light in painting. Time and space are discordant. The alterity of the picture dissolves.
