These paintings explore humanity trough a "digital scrim". (A scrim is a type of drapery used in theater scenery which is opaque when lit from the front, but transparent when lit from the back.) The paintings are based on images created by printers used to make temporary ID labels. On close inspection the printed images seem to show the world through a scrim. Because the original images are quite small, I use a scanner to recapture them for enlarging and printing, which then becomes the basis for each painting. Originally in Black and white, I add my own color to the images and make other alterations during the painting process. The work is extremely time consuming because I have to use very, very small brushes and each painting takes about three or four coats of paint.
