Statement about AOAP Submitted Artwork
Isaac sees painting as a slippery structure that provides visual bonds a surface to redefine the value of an image. The visual bonds are the debris of an audio-visual production(s).
I am mostly interested in oxymorons, irony and satire; where the Postdigital provokes translation and mistranslation. Image making in this way creates disruptive engagements of thought and affect. In short, painting imitates life, if only for a moment.
