      Arist Statement

      I seek a condition that is at once contemporary and timeless in my images, often to uncover historical forbears of contemporary subjects. For example, a pixilated line may be combined with oil paint, and a modern model may have a resemblance to a Renaissance sitter.

      My recent work takes up the subject of the contemporary body and perceptions of body. I am especially interested in the ambiguities of a body that fails, subverts or exceeds conventional expectations. Hence, a pregnant man, a living Barbie woman, a fetus resembling a Pompeii mummy.  I am interested in the edge where surface and essence (or nature) are bound to and betraying one another.

      I take pleasure in the tropes of painting, such as the frame and evidence of the hand. I treat the material issues of painting less conventionally, making use of mixed media for color and texture. Color is also a central concern.

      Abstraction and figuration play a role in my work via a process by which an image gets distilled and elaborated. The paintings show the transformation of their source materials by my hand. A lo-fi line, for example, descries the image’s prior digital state and its history of circulation, but is re-contextualized as a formal element in iconic portraiture. In this way, the paintings poetically bundle experience with something that is at once undefined and recurrent in the mythologies of our culture.
