My recent marriage to my wonderful husband Ian has inspired the name change you see here. Formerly Kiera McTigue, I am now Kiera Reese. And while the wedding festivities caused this blog to experience some neglect, my art making has continued strong!
Currently in my work, I am exploring how the Digital Age is affecting our perception of time. With almost all of time available to us with a quick click or swipe, we no longer have to experience history in a linear, narrative progression. We can quickly jump from Henry VIII to the Moon Landing in a matter of seconds. Technology also allows us to live in a continuous now, fine tuning plans moments before they happen and learning of global news within hours of the event. I am not critiquing our culture's use of technology-it's a powerful tool that I personally rely on. I am more interested in exploring these concepts in a visual language.
Below are my most recent experiments with these ideas. I printed them 24"x72" and I assure you, they are beautiful. As always, I am very excited to see where this work takes me. I'll try to keep you posted!
