I did a series in a very hot August

Oil paint on Drywall, gesso, spackle and plaster

9" x 13" each (total of 68)

This series is based on an archive of Screenshots capturing moments of Skype conversations between a man and woman. Each shot—originally a pixelated PNG file—is painted with oil paint onto a 9" x 13" plaster tablet, the same size and approximate weight as the laptop screen on which it was shot. The series consists of 68 paintings, which may be installed and rearranged in a grid.
