Artist’s Statement

The 2 and 3 dimensional work in this show is based on images shamelessly sourced from Facebook.

These have been copied, altered, or rifted upon, to explore our involvement with the Internet.  Unlike earlier generations who even 20 years ago searched texts and libraries for facts, finding serendipitous information and broadening knowledge on the way, we now turn to our screens for contact, communication and information. We often type in a question and receive a brief and very specific answer, without wider context, and with the ever present possibility of ‘fake news’ or ‘fake facts.’

We have embraced a world of friending and private groups, jokes, memes and uplifting quotations.  From the solitude of our own room, we share experiences, emotions, and support with those we’ve never met, via uplifting platitudes, sentimental quotations and pictures of cute animals.
