The RollerPainting Series is a meditation on tools; more specifially, painting tools. What I often like to do is to pose a question that I attempt to answer with the medium, using the medium as a kind of Oigee board. (Interesting word, 'medium', is it not?). In this series I compare the computer to a paint roller. They are both tools that were originally designed to be used for practical purposes rather than for art. So, (I ask the Oigee board): can I take these two non-art tools and create some art? It's a loaded question, of course, but so is any question posed to a Oigee :-). In this series both the paint roller and the computer have become my brushes and the monitor my (virtual) canvas, resulting in a synthesis of disciplines to be realized as a fine art print.
