In my paintings, I typically combine hometown locations, important people, and memories of personal experiences to create individual and series of paintings that focus mainly on Americana and coming of age. Although I enjoy drawing from life in my sketchbook, my paintings are often done from personal photographs or digitally collaged images mixing both primary and secondary sources. Recently, I have become particularly fascinated by the role of Artificial Intelligence or AI in shaping the future of image creation and visual communication. My Interior Series, use images generated by AI text to image programs. I have been able to use AI algorithms to generate images that are both captivating, thought-provoking, and at times disturbing. AI can be used to create images that are beyond the realm of human imagination and to push the boundaries of what is possible in visual art. This work challenges our perceptions of what is real and what is artificial, and raises questions about the ethics of AI in art, especially painting.
