Hall Groat II Paintings
This particular piece was painted several years ago, and was part of a series I created that addressed the impact of modern technology on humanity. On many levels, technological devices such as cellular phones have become both status symbols and devices that have contributed to social conformity (the abolishment of the sense of self and the individual). I believe that our efforts to systematize the passage of time in today’s technological world have desensitized us, affecting our relationships with our families and friends, and hope that we can consider being more sympathetic and compassionate with one another.
I enjoyed the process of creating the documentary film connected with this painting as much as making the painting. Be sure to visit the video link on this page to check out the film. Please take a few mintues to view the documentary film that was created for this painting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shdGK2RhdLU
