In American artist Chis Hood's series: ''Split Pictures'' he continues to investigate artist's ongoing interests in cultural entropy and reconfiguration. Combining traditional techniques with the languages of digital territories, his work often features images culled from counterculture, art history, and mass media rendered abstract by translation. Focused on themes of identity, memory and loss, Hood explores within his works the wider role of images and contemporary painting reflected through a unique understanding of abstraction in which personal and social imagery collide in the 21st century.
