My current practice explores the interchange of digital media and painting. The canvas and smartphone screen function in a similar vein, as window to a virtually rendered elsewhere. The painted ‘selfies’ point to the shifting purpose of the screen from window to mirror. By displacing the ‘selfie’ from its social forums I am able emphasize the specific tone, expression and silhouette that now informs its global identity. Its universality juxtaposes its direct relationship with personalised technologies. Paintings are reprinted onto the LED papers found behind screens, this suggests the type of virtual memory that haunts the device, through which I am able to comment on a wider public memory.
