In his view, painting’s physicality, slowness and history facilitate contemplation, an antidote to attention-grabbing algorithms, which roam our digitized image-saturated culture to propagate content that seeks a superficial form of entertainment. With his highly detailed figurative work the artist aspires to a more enthralling journey than a kitten-filled Instagram reel. Namely, a series of intertwined painted narratives that take his experience with technology as a starting point to discuss pivotal questions on life in the 21st Century.
