zoom paintings (2019 - ongoing) is a series of paintings which evolved from Addie Wagenknecht’s 2015-2017 dick pic series which utilized images she received via DMs on Instagram to create abstract works of art.
This series of paintings similarly uses micro areas from images and videos Wagenknecht has received online. Instead of using Instagram messages, she uses zoom calls, google hangouts and other video conferencing platforms over the duration of the pandemic to create a custom palette which is utilized for the paintings created. The artist uses each video to create a pallet of brushes she then uses to create abstract contemporary paintings which reflect the day to day pandemic from her screen.
