User – Project work

Andrew Litten artist painting ID Smear

User oil on canvas 120 x 150 cm







User – deals specifically with the subject of on-line identity, and in particular the power and subversive influence of on-line anonymity. A sinister vague figure appears encroaching upon a surrounding black void.  This is a grey area stirring. The black surround seems to function as a container for the figure, almost holding the figure upright – or more literally, creating a User platform. The figure appears shrouded-like and desecrated. The hands appear as the most direct organ of communication – the mouth has been superseded – suggesting a fracturing of the body in its presence – an image of disembodiment
