Stephanie Temma Hier’s paintings reflect the experience of traversing digital space in the 21st Century. Her works mimick an understanding of what it means to “fall down a rabbit hole” as a description of the contemporary consumption of images and visual culture, through which meaning fluctuates as images are brought together temporarily by big data algorithms seemingly indifferent to hierarchies of high and low culture.
