Carpe Diem, 2017, oil, acrylic and spray paint on canvas, 130cm x 170cm

The painting is a responce to the 24 hours McDonalds Drive Thru I just moved next to. In my work I look at life as it is experienced at first hand and through screens - living in a contemporary consumer culture has both digital and analogue dimensions and my painting process reflects this duality. After drawing with pencil on paper I embellish and develop my designs on photoshop, using sourced imagery from the internet.
I use the speed of digital processes to keep up with my fast-paced decisions about compositions and colour choices. These paintings are then made in large scale in paint on canvas. So the digital becomes analogue again, but I use these materials to approximate the visual appearance of the screen. The paintings are a hybrid of digital and analogue visual effects and the materials are chosen for this purpose.
