Certain sectors of the art world keep declaring that painting is dead. It kind of is. Really, all "fine art" is on life support because it's competing with so many much flashier and sometimes more compelling media. Movies, video games, even animated GIFs, and billions upon billions of photos. So I'm portraying what I see: too much of everything. I prefer painting because it forces things to hold still. Sculpture might be acceptable as well. People want things to move and be interactive all the time, but I feel like there are already too many things to watch that take up lots of our limited time. Interaction might be okay on some level, and I hope to explore that more in future pieces.
