I think the speed and ease of commication by digital means rewards the removal of nuance and breadth of what we communicate for the sake of convenience in how we communicate.

I don’t think that prioritizing ‘the how’ over ‘the what’ is better or worse based on their respective merits of depth or scope, but instead wonder which is better for us during this, our particular moment in history?

If we need to communicate effectively to work together and build a stronger society than what we currently have - because sometimes it feels like a real Tower of Babel situation - then maybe we should reconsider how readily we use the digital medium to do so.

My 10 paintings from 2018, using this pixelated style, were made while I was thinking thinking these thoughts.
