    Height 29cm
    Width 30cm
    Depth 2cm

    Furniture grade ply
    Ink and medium
    Craft resin

    This series of art works are made from router cut furniture grade ply, with a hand poured 3 mm layer of resin on the surface. The resin creates a deep, lustrous, rich surface.

    The ink 'cloud' included some metallic ink, which changes in luminosity as light travels across the surface.

    This painting has a copper wire hanging device attached to the back which allows it to be hung in any orientation. The painting sits out from the wall 12mm.

    In these paintings I am is describing the social networks we build in the digital realm: 'I am interested in how this new form of communicating and connecting affects our emotional relationships with others - does the digital environment enhance or restrict our communication? Are we closer to each other or more distant? Are our communications more real or less real? Are we expanding or narrowing our lives?'

    The paintings are three specific shapes - an oval, a capsule, and a circle that is divided in half. The split circle represents the brain; the two hemispheres of the earth; and the earthly and ethereal/heavenly realms (and asks where the internet resides). The oval references map-making, specifically the expanded oval showing the globe in one space, whereas the capsule shape introduces the question of whether we are 'self-medicating' by using social media. Are we using it to fill a void within ourselves, and does it work? In addition the range of shapes can all be read as medication. 'Many millions of people use social networking like Facebook on a daily basis. Like – Comment – Share raises the question of what we want from social networking and whether we get it.'
