My paintings consider a new way of seeing the world in a post-digital landscape, with recurring skulls and chess pieces representing the human intellect. The Strategy & Mortality series employs artificial intelligence as a tool to generate images based on my own work. The digital images are printed at different scales and collaged into physical mixed media paintings. Each canvas becomes a multiplicity, simultaneously exploring several ways of looking at a subject or idea.
