SFMOMA Artists Gallery will present a selection of recent large scale paintings from the Hifi series at their Fort Mason gallery this month.
These paintings are are the result of hours spent listening to favorite pieces of music, spoken word, etc, sometimes over and over again until the noise of the life of the city is drowned by the sound emanating from my speakers.
The space I go to in those moments has inspired this work. The conscious effort to transport myself to another place or space. The ubiquitousness of mechanically enhanced sound in my daily life and my unconscious envelopment in it.
The auditory experience shapes the world we move through today as much as the visual. Even in looking, we are listening.
