2019: Digital Exhibition w/ @artistres_.
Materials: Digital Images.
Painting 2600 is a research projection created during my online residency with @artistres_. This project is made up of expanded painting exploring the intersection of video games and painting. The paintings experiment with the appropriation and re-interpretation of the readymade abstract forms within primitive video games, specifically games made for the Atari 2600. Atari 2600 gameplay and graphics become collected material and the direct reference source for these paintings. These paintings present the Atari 2600's geographic, minimalistic and abstracted forms as modern images, worth reconsidering.
This is work is yet to be exhibited in a physical space.
