Paintings from "A Virtual Journey"

Modopoulos has been exploring the concept of surveillance, often creating work using captured images from worldwide public surveillance cameras. Now part of every day life, cameras document our every move, but they also allow us to travel the world virtually. Her recent paintings – "A Virtual Journey" – are characterized by the use of these captured moments, which depict the aesthetic of the subject matter while commenting on contemporary society. Capturing these moments is not happenstance, but the result of numerous visits – watching and constantly photographing to absorb the essence of each destination.
