THE GREEN SCREEN PAINTINGS

THE GREEN SCREEN PAINTINGS USE MODERN TECHNOLOGY TO EXAMINE HOW FAR HUMANS HAVE PROGRESSED - AS ARTISTS AND AS A SPECIES. 

WE LOSE SIGHT OF THE FANTASTIC NATURE OF TECHNOLOGY BECAUSE IT IS EVER-CHANGING. THIS SERIES WAS CREATED AS A WAY TO SLOW THINGS DOWN. AS A PLEA TO TAKE THE TIME TO RECOGNIZE OUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS AS A HUMAN RACE, AS OPPOSED TO HONING IN ON OUR ENDLESS FLAWS. TO URGE VIEWERS TO REALIZE THE SHEER MADNESS OF THE MECHANICS OF GREEN SCREENING AND TO CONTEMPLATE THE VARYING DEGREES OF OUR ART MAKING OVER TIME. 

THE COLOR GREEN OVERWHELMS THIS SERIES DUE TO ITS PECULIAR DUALITY - BEING THE MOST NATURAL AND UNNATURAL COLOR OF OUR TIME. IT IS THE COLOR SYNONYMOUS WITH THE UNAFFECTED ENVIRONMENT, YET IT IS THE SAME COLOR USED TO DIGITALLY ALTER ANY GIVEN ENVIRONMENT INTO A FANTASY LAND OF OUR CHOOSING. THIS COLOR REINFORCES THE NOTION THAT NOTHING IS AT IT SEEMS - A CONCEPT THAT HAS BECOME EVER-PRESENT IN THESE SHIFTY TIMES OF QUESTIONABLE REALITIES.
