HOUSE PARTY is a body of work based around a painted house, set for demolition that I was given permission to paint late in 2020. Pieces from this body of work included photographic and video documentation of the painting process, and new works building on ideas, experiments and techniques used in the house across traditional and digital media.
One central theme of the work is the overlapping of digital and physical worlds, where or how there is a distinction, and how this affects our engagement, perception and interaction with the world and each other.
I was thinking about these works as oscillating objects, simultaneously existing in traditionally oppositional states - digital and physical, public and domestic, natural and manufactured, authentic and inauthentic, virtual and real.
