Watt King

“In painting, I like to work with acquired images, many from nostalgic popular art, which I manipulate and distort using digital technology and xerography. I project these images onto the canvas to use as templates for the painted images which I layer and distress to create abstractions that are weathered and worn. I prefer to leave my canvases unframed, in keeping with a pictoral environment that is a cross between a peeling billboard and a threadbare tapestry.”
