We English refer to observational painting as "Still Life." The French poetically name this practice "Nature Morte" which translates, morbidly to "Dead Nature." Unfortunately the species depicted here will only be digital copies, manipulated from a lost moment and doomed to live a life of digital purgatory. The pixels in this painting refer to the circle of lifelessness these digital images take on, compressed, exported, reposted and imitated through art. Lets not fuck up the world too much.
