The Pop Baroque and Chinoiserie series are pictorial vernacular reconsidering rococo troupes and modernist strategies through the veneer of reductionist painting, data collecting, and abstract system of indexing. The paintings formal and psychological syntax invert the possibility of images as forensics or experiences. The robust influence of merchant trade from Asia through the Silk Road, and the Dutch East Indies Company, to today’s Google search machines, sublimates a geo-political aesthetic. I am interested in these information shifts, with the systems of technology, science, art and philosophy, blurring distinctions to a collective contemporary vessel; recreating additional signage of memes and themes. They are a celebratory, investigative visual opiate.
