The analog painting’s relationship with digital technology plays a key role in Dispirito’s practice. All of his works start life with the use of iPhone apps – the drawings and animations composed in this digital space are then made into paintings which mimic the digital textures and colours of these studies. In his most recent works Dispirito focuses on subjective human states of being. His subject matter is isolated and reduced, becoming the focus for painterly exercises in colour, volume and style. The digital plasticity found in the bold colours and simplified shapes – as well as the range of emotions that they convey – creates an uneasy atmosphere in the works. Dispirito’s dreamscapes have more than a splash of technicolour plasticity about them; although at first glance the candy colours maintain their visual appeal – they are not necessarily somewhere we would want to live.
