What I know about flowers is a series of flower paintings based on found sources. I search the Internet for sources using specific criteria, and I restrict the abundance of images to only those found on the first page of results. I incorporate cropping, white borders and blurring from the found images into the painting. I paint the colours as they occur when printed onto paper without further reference to the online source. As a result, the choice of palette is based on the quality of the printer ink.
This series investigates the efficacy of various modes of sharing information and how those systems of dissemination can degrade the integrity of the original.
What I know about flowers questions whether the distortions and inaccuracies between an original work of art and a reproduction are sufficient to constitute a new idea rather than a reproduction. Also central to this series is the conflation of subjective and objective interpretations.
