2019. This research project took place during my online residency with @artistres_ for the month of April.
Painting2600 [Beta] is a research projection made up of expanded painting exploring the intersection of videogames 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.
