4-6 For me, the relationship between digital and literal

For me, the relationship between digital and literal or “real” painting, so to speak, is very important. I combine the traditional part of painting with the composition possibilities offered by computers and different software.

Many of the images I use are taken from the Internet. In one sense, it’s as though one were to capture material that flows through the Internet, and to “petrify” it at a certain moment in relation to a space and architecture. This painting is meant to create a passage between the real architectural and virtual worlds. I am interested in the concept of that which we call “site,” especially in the sense of place. “Surfing” in the case of this painting can be taken literally, in that one views the work while strolling by.
