    Wayne Gonzales's process begins with digital images culled from random searches on the internet. Dates and locations of the actual images are unimportant, but content and search phrases are the catalysts for further investigation. The artist edits the image into a form that can be executed in a restricted palette of one or two colours. The paintings are loosely based on the structure of commercial reproduction technologies but aim to embrace both the abstract and representational nature of these systems. The image may be visible from a distance, but upon closer inspection becomes lost in the very brushwork that defines its form: an experiential reality analogous to the difference between watching a crowd from a distance and being a participant in the action.
