Laeh Glenn (b. 1979) lives and works in Sebastopol, CA. The artist’s paintings consider the conflation of historical precedents in painting with the digital textures of image culture. Glenn’s work addresses the digital life of an image; namely, how repetition and sharing influence image quality and how painting has the ability to converse with damaged images. Often beginning with source material found online, Glenn returns to images multiple times, with each subsequent painting shifting slightly in tone, texture, or scale. These subtle shifts mimic the effect of an image’s digital presence as it travels from screen to screen. The paintings, like the images they are sourced from, are infinitely repeatable yet entirely unique.
