Enda O'Donoghue's most recent body of work, "Neu-Resolution", consists of paintings that are all derived from digital, computer and internet images. These are found images; digitally found, selected from the immeasurable assortment of images that exist in the online world. The choice is deliberately eclectic and plays with ideas of a suggested randomness and the continuously growing, chaotic and oftentimes bizarrely expansive nature of cyber-space. Presenting a window or brief snapshot of the world as mediated through computers and the internet. Images ranging from the mundane, to the banal, to the humorous, to the pointless, to the curious, to the weird, to the suggestive, to the personal, to the distorted and to the sublime. Dealing in a direct way with this "new world" of images, which have proliferated into our lives in recent times, exploring the digital aesthetics and the nuances of this visual language. Through painting exploring the degenerative, erosive and corrosive noise effects that are characteristic of digital image processes and Internet mediated images. Pixelisation, graininess, interference, digital noise, over-enlargement, etc: in effect translating what could be called the 'Digital Dirt' into painting. www.endaism.com
