Ten years ago only one third of Americans owned a smartphone. Today, almost two thirds of the population own one. In less than a decade a handheld computer has gone from marginal to indispensable. In his New Yorker article, "I Used to be a Human Being," Political Journalist, Andrew Sullivan reveals how our society is consumed by these devices. "We have gone from looking up and around to constantly looking down." Society is obsessed with constant gratification and this issue diminishes the ability to reflect in order to grasp an understanding of oneself and one's surroundings.

My most recent works consider the accessibility of photography today and Jean François Chevrier's notions of the tableaux. I take photos when moments I find affective are fading. Photography is more accessible now that it is built into our phones, which we seem to need (for work purposes) and have all the time. Reasons for sharing photos have shifted and seem skewed. By going through my archive of photos, I decide which are actually memorable versus those that seem to have been frivolously taken. I choose to work with the photos that I remember having a genuine feeling before capturing. I transfer this sensation, which I pinpoint by painting on smaller photos, to larger scale canvases. The smaller photos can be seen in more detail under "mechanical sketching" which is a term I borrowed, originally coined by late painter, Barkley Hendricks.
