Ruth Lantz explores the intersection between painting and digital language. Commingling abstraction and representation she approaches her works through a series of perceptual, process driven and painterly filtration systems. Lantz compiles these tensional forces to visualize the continual translation, overlap and fracture imbued by information technologies.  She manipulates landscape images to re-present how technology has altered the way we understand, mediate or degrade our visual environments and conventions. Condensing the digital affect and the painterly sensation into one inscrutable surface, Lantz creates an image that is at once familiar but also removed, thus challenging the viewer to question the nature of visual appearances.
