Understanding the internet as a place where past and future coexist in the present, Stokes’ works explore our fraught relationship with technology. His latest body of work investigates our departing relationship with the real world in favour of the virtual. These pieces exist in defiance of the screen declaring and underscoring the painting as a physical object. The result is a body of work with a post-minimalist sensibility ruminating on the subtly of material and nuance of colour. The quiet pieces oscillate between sardonicism, melancholia and introspection.
