Virtual Picnic
Virtual Picnic
Oil on canvas
2011

We're so accustomed to interpreting visual symbols and to remembering an experience through the digital image that I thought I'd create a painting that symbolized this tendency. We no longer need the reality of places like a park with grass and clouds and sky -- so long as we have the picture...That's why the style of this painting is a bit more flat than my usual...it's a reflection of the caricature that we make out of our lives sometimes.
