Virtual Landscapes

Studio shot

The genesis for my latest series of work came from watching my sons play their gaming consoles. They were fully immersed in these virtual landscapes while using a headset to communicate with their friends. I wanted to explore the idea of these faux natural settings taking the place of what is outside our front door. The worlds created in these games are vast enough for me to create unique compositions. An antithesis to en plein air.

I am also interested in the way they are communicating with their buddies. With all the ways technology impacts our lives, the obvious question is; can we ever disconnect? Time to ourselves seems to be ever-fleeting.
