The metaverse is a catchall term encapsulating the confluence of our virtual, digital, and physical existences. As realities collide to become the metaverse, new meaning forms infiltrate our spaces armed with a lexicon of fragments. Fragments recursively reconstructing our existence as a domain governed by bits. My work probes this verse through scatter and fracture, while wielding the anterior language of oil painting. Surface reticulations in paint handling intertwine formal and conceptual concerns, forming allegorical constructs of alterity that mine messages from our fragmented digital sphere. The stylistic binary hatches and bands are enmeshed with personal figurative images that interrogate the metaverse and its emergent gaze. Each painting contributes to a conversation examining the precarity of global social conditions that subjugate humanity through a commodity driven existence.
