Squares on Squares 2, 2013. 42″x 40″ Oil on canvas.
For the second iteration of the Minecraft map, I utilized the same process as my first painting, however I was braver in the construction of an architecture that wasn’t so heavily referential to the original image. The same image is sampled, but it is totally deconstructed. Additionally, in this painting I was more concerned with the mass accumulation of fragments to construct a whole, rather than in creating any understandable map of the world.
