Laeh Glenn's work takes on the conflation of historical and contemporary precedents in painting and the representation of those precedents digitally. Her paintings look to the digital life of an image; how repetition and sharing effect quality and context and how painting has a unique ability to converse with these altered and damaged images. Often she will recycle images multiple times, each subsequent painting shifting slightly in tone, texture or scale. These subtle shifts, mimic the effect of an image’s digital experience as it travels from screen to screen. These paintings, like the images they are sourced from, are infinitely repeatable and always completely unique.
