About

Starting with digital photographs, William Betts’ scenes of leisure are filtered through multiple layers of technological intervention. Betts’ photographs are reorganized into pixels on a grid using his own proprietary software, then printed as a series of dots using a retrofitted CNC machine that ejects acrylic paint though a pneumatic valve. The perfectly uniform droplets of paint produce an image that feels familiar from afar, but abstracted and alien up close.

White, yellow, blue and red.
