New York Based artist Sonne Hernandez oil paintings explore the makeup of systems in which we live and our proliferating response as a society. Her work demands for the viewer to take a closer look at the details of our rapid high-tech culture we are creating and draw attention to how it is changing social norms that challenge ethics and litigation at an alarming rate.
The results are television screens depicting on one hand our obsession with self infamy as a culture and then blank magnetic cassette tapes in reference to overwhelming surveillance. Her subtly layered surfaces of paint with an architecture like imagery of the blown up subject give suggestion to that of a machine and hidden interior functions. The intent is making a connection to the objects internal tasks and are own commonwealth. Transparency and lack thereof simultaneously being at the center.
