The image for this painting comes from a series of digital photographs I took of an old cartoon on VHS using a CRT-TV and an analog video synthesizer in order to generate glitch images. Using acrylic paint and an airbrush I recreated the image to simulate a motion blur. I then used a striping tool to paint the top layer to appear like the tracking lines on an old TV. I love the idea of taking an image that would otherwise be refuse and elevating it to the high-art realm of painting.
