Master of Fine Arts (MFA)
© 2017 Tony Larson
I am interested in altering the modes of communication to which I am subjugated. I am open to participating fully in the world around me, especially in the arms of technology. With every new media channel directed at changing consumer behavior and every new gadget at its dedicated servitude, there are new cracks and chasms to inhabit. These spaces are where new propositions are made. I discover and expand these empty spaces by sticking to a regimented set of processes and self imposed limitations to the way I approach painting. My work proposes that the space of art is uniquely capable of supporting the contradictory yet connective nature of communication and behavior and is an optimal forum for contemplation and discovering meaning. New possibilities are discovered.
