Mission

Justin Strom (b. 1975, Columbia, Missouri, US) is a mixed-media print artist whose work expresses an aesthetic based on the human image as shaped by, and reflecting, our digital age: an age that attempts to dissolve the distinction between the virtual and the corporal. He combines a hybrid of photography, traditional and digital printmaking techniques to produce seductive surfaces that illustrate the tension between the technological sublime and the removal of a real, physical experience. Inspiration for his current work can be traced to opulent Dutch still life paintings, which offer a rich canvas to construct scenes of digitally rendered amalgamations to act as symbolic reminders of transformation and impermanence.
