Artist's description:

For the past few months, I have been fascinated by the SMPTE television test screen (the ubiquitous color bars that everyone associates with TV technical difficulties). This painting is my first attempt at re-interpreting it in an abstracted manner.

I first digitally altered the image, attempting to distort it to the point where it may be recognizable to some, but also becomes something entirely new. I recreated this digital image with precisely-mixed acrylic paints. Onto this framework I added some textures to add a few points of interest to the otherwise minimal composition.

As with most of my paintings, the edges were taped before I began preparing the panel, and so they are very crisp and clean.
