This very highly textured painting is inspired by ideas from modern philosophy and virtual reality. Recent philosophers such as Barthes, Baudrillard and Derrida etc comment on the idea of reality (real things) being lost for the sake of virtual reality (the appearance of real things but without meaning).
Textures and marks are included that could be seen as symbols and signs. I like the work to have a strong visual impact and to be interesting close up as well as from a distance.
