New York-based artist and musician Todd Arsenault primarily works with the medium of paint. He explores the conceptual and formal exchange between traditional and technology based mediums. To these ends his work at once embraces and rejects technology as a way to continually question its role in the process of painting. Through layering disparate visual fragments from sources that include old and new media, found images from the Internet and images gathered during his travels, Arsenault’s paintings function as a conduit. Conceptually the pieces signify and codify nostalgia and memory through a cumulative historical existence.
