    Katie says: "This body of work centers around the concept of FOMO (The Fear of Missing Out), a mental state of dysphoria triggered when engaging with social media. Repeating ovoid forms abstractly allude to eyes, a mask, or a face and ambiguously refer to selfie culture and emojis. Hyper-saturated colors are sourced directly from consumer culture and advertisements. Through this series of abstract paintings, I experimented with a wide range of materials, scales, mediums, and techniques while mining the significance behind the recurring motif. This image represents a FOMO painting rendered with three-dimensional layers of acrylic, latex, sawdust, and spray paint on panel set against a neutral white background."
