Noise is a collection of work focusing on the mental and physical process of translating a photograph into paint. The work is about our cultural interaction with music, technology, space, memory recall, and sensory overload. My inspiration is rooted in DJ culture and European electro house music. A DJ and I have similar processes. A DJ takes a record, or sample altering it by pitch, tone, cue slicing, cross-fading, scratching, looping creating a sound that is technically layered and distorted. In the process of making a painting I take something that exists in the reality and alter it through technical approaches to impact the viewer.
