Dear Patti Smith ARI, Melbourne 2011

This work explores the concept of a "post-everything" world: one saturated with imagery of all kinds; and queries how our mind attempts to make sense of the over-proliferation of visual data, as provided to the eye and examine how this flood of images relates to a contemporary concept of painting, the act of painting production and consumption and the idea of painting in an expanded field. By creating a painted environment, inspired by the rolling news feeds of 24 hour news networks and the coverage of recent natural disasters, this work hopes to engulf the viewer in a world of saturated colour that encourages perceptual shifts and spatial ambiguities, a world where the figure ground relationships are reversible and unstable and reflect on current global cultural, economic, political and environmental instability.
