EVAN DESPELDER

 

ARTIST STATEMENT

My work is an exploration of the formal and conceptual possibilities of the digitally mediated painting. Hans Hoffman’s “push/pull” formalism should operate not just as visual phenomena but also as a conceptual phenomenon predicated upon representing both doubt and belief simultaneously. Using painting as a vehicle to fundamentally question the way our realities are constructed, my work is an expression of modern ambivalence, a representation of the world in which I live, where truth and the human mind are malleable, manipulated, and history is leveled by an unprecedented access to information.
