This oil painting was inspired by my love of pointillist and divisionist art. I used the optical mixing of colors (pointillism) to help with the collaging of shapes (zeros & ones) across the face. The way the shapes move across (divisionism) the face help to define the shape of the face.
The original idea behind this painting:
I’ve always been intrigued about how we receive our information. The zeros and ones represent what has been made for us to see. Are we actually seeing what is there, or are we seeing what we are made to? Does this information affect us in such a way that we have become defined by it?
