Caui Lofgren
Situated between the familiar iconography of commercial advertising and historical painting, my work aims to reconcile today's copious and often contradictory image streams. Through accumulation and hybridization, the patterns and symmetry in my work recall Byzantium icon painting, and like a Rorschach’s test, reflect underlying tensions in our collective obsessions. Dislocated from their original source, remade pop culture imagery saturates a new American landscape both real and imagined, actual and virtual.
