Addie Wagenknecht's zoom paintings (2019 - ongoing) emerged from her 2015-2017 series DICK PIC, in which she used images she got via Instagram DMs to create abstract works of art. Micro areas from photographs and videos Wagenknecht got online are also used in this series of paintings. Instead of utilizing Instagram messaging, she works with zoom calls, Google Hangouts, and other video conferencing tools to build a personalized palette for the paintings that evolve over the course of the pandemic. The artist creates a palette of brushes from each video, which she then utilizes to make abstract contemporary paintings that mirror the day-to-day plague she sees on her screen.
