Artist Statement

“Night watching” is part of an ongoing series of screen-captured imagery from TV programs made about criminalised people from a position of authority. The series focuses on representations of alienated human subjects, authority and criminality, expressions of shame, fear and anxiety, and recreational social rituals. The title of the drawing is a play on Rembrandt’s painting “The Night Watch”, which is a constructed image portraying a group of military persons “watching” over a city. The history of group portraiture predominantly depicts subjects intentionally posing to be represented by the artist, While this drawing depicts a scene of partygoers mostly unaware they are being watched and that their image is being captured.
