The following paintings by Kon Trubkovich draw inspiration from technology and the modern world. This Russian-born, New York City based artist began his work by filming his own videos. The artist then further analyzes the videos, deciding to create still-life paintings of some and others become separate films in themselves.
The paintings are of oil and graphite presented on canvas showcasing their own
His oil and graphite canvas paintings present their own individual statements. The works are true-to-form down to the tiniest details including glitches, snow and interference. These details are most recently seen in his Transmission series, where people’s faces have been distorted beyond identification.
“As the films and stills coexist it becomes unclear which precedes the other. The ethos of ‘…do something, do something to that, and then do something to that’ (Jasper Johns) takes precedent in his process, resulting in a more enigmatic dialogue,” states Kon’s artist biography in Museum 52, where he had his first solo exhibit back in May 2007.
