Darkly Humorous NSFW Paintings Critique Society’s Relationship With Technology

After resisting technology’s pull for a long time, artist John Jackson gave in to buffering, dwindling memory, and social media, which inspired a series of nude figurative paintings that, in turn, interrogate society’s obsession with all things tech.

The Nashville-based artist produced this Technology Series, and it features things like Apple’s spinning wheel painted onto a landscape, Vermeer’s Girl With a Pearl Earring holding a pearly cell phone instead, and, in Facebook Sunset, a couple on a beach who may be thinking about their News Feed, or instead actually on Facebook thinking about the beach.

“When I finally gave in, I was frustrated at spending so much of my time dealing with passwords, user names, downloading, uploading, updates, GBs, RAM, memory, hard drives, external hard drives, buffering, blah blah blah, etc.,” Jackson told Creators. “I was searching for a direction with my work, so I channeled and expressed my frustrations with technology into my art by merging the two.”
