In this currently ongoing series titled GMT+2, I produced a glitch by hacking a laser printer with very low ink levels. With each print, each photograph study became more degraded and distorted. Thus, breaking down each image to the point it coincidentally resembled and recalled imperfections of aged frescos, water-colours, and pencil drawings. After scanning, enlarging, re-printing, and transferring the ink of the image piece by piece onto canvas, I paint over the intentionally imperfect surfaces using my hands, oil sticks, rags, squeegees, and brushes. Empirically reproducing the space once lived.
