These works form part of an ongoing investigation into the nature of information and how it is generated, distributed and fragmented. Each work is produced according to the same set of constraints, using the same set of fragmented information generated from found imagery. Through this process the found images are separated from their original content and used instead as a means of exploring the various tensions inherent in painting; rigid structure and improvisation; flatness and depth; the mechanical and the handmade; movement and stillness; durations of time; seriality and variation. The found images used to create these artworks were taken from global top ranking Google search trends.
