The television screen is a device I use that deploys a wide range of images and information. The information relayed by a television is ephemeral and always in a state of flux as it is pure visual information that is continuously being redacted and replaced - this information is never transparent nor is it permanent. The source material for my paintings are harvested from analogue televisions displaying images which are degraded by static or low-resolution; the low-resolution quality that is a key result of the analogue TV image disrupts vision and destroys clarity. Drained colour resolutions, shifting light intensity and various contrasts and reflections can result in a vast array of on-screen abstractions, which often go against their original behavioural purposes. By choosing to transform these scenes into paintings I attempt to grant the images a form of clarity and illumination by using painting as the mediator to breach the quagmire between the confusion of static and the clarity of the painted image.
