Created on a variety of digital devices, Aaron Scheer’s works utilise the digital realm  to expand what painting can be and mean today by combining elements of collage,  photography and painterly technique. The artist's process involves the use of free  digital gestures, keyboard commands and touchpad swipes, which once completed, can be read as an abstracted version of contemporary digital activities. Full of vibrant  and vivid color palettes, Scheer's works are infused with distortions, static, and blips  that contrast with subtle gradations of luminous color saturations. Through his art,  Scheer questions the idea of the human in technology and the technological in the  human. Thereby, allowing him to explore the challenges that an increasingly digitised  world presents, such as virtual matter, perceptions of the real, automated production,  big data, technocracy and contemporary working cults.
