We spend our lives around and within the internet, using email and text messages. But these digital layers of information have yet to integrate into our paintings. Why?
These images present us with quandaries. How do we combine the “real world” with “online world” … and should these screen images really be put in paint at all? How many of us use the internet to research subjects, collect images, learn techniques and gain inspirations, but don’t include the context of their harvest due to issues of taste and subject matter?
Maybe the solution lies not in content, but in form. Here’s another short by Tony Zhou’s “Every Frame a Painting” series, with ideas for film that can be applied to your paintings. As he says, the playing field is wide open. It’s time for us to invent and re-integrate our lives with our art works.
