As we are impelled into the digital era, an endless array of virtual information continues to change and displace how we experience, respond and imagine art. What we are and what we are not (i.e the self) is perpetually altered. Incorporating digital consciousness into an analog process, the works in Michromatic set out to bring contemporary “cyber culture” to a place of visual cognition. Using intricate paintings, Jacob’s work mirrors the infrastructure systems and databases of the internet, creating work which reshapes the self and the psyche.
A continuation of his previous series, the Daughters of Divinity, which explored the symbol of the self within a cosmic environment, Jacob’s new body of work explores how the internet manifests a universal consciousness within a physical form. His layered canvas panels create large-scale symmetrical, “michromatic” paintings which explore the “micro” (shrinking down technology to an accessible form) and “chromatic” (color). Using primary hues as the base for his color palette, he finds the infinite within the finite while utilizing geometric mark making to fractalize the female form and bind the subject to the environment.
