Untitled (Federer #3), 2012. 30″x 40″ Oil on canvas.
A year after completing Federer 2, I constructed a painting from a different Federer action shot. After rendering Federer’s body according to the image, I covered the entire painting repeatedly with square shapes. This painting is my response to being a painter in the digital age. The squares were meant to reference the digital image. Through the process of painting these squares, I both distort the original image and deny the rendered image as “sacred”.
