I wholly admit that I have a short tether to technology, in this day and age it’s hard to go longer than a day without going online. Dan Witz’s portraiture series shows that even though we feel more connected than ever through modern communication, it really is the opposite. His paintings portray how disengaged and alone we are as we look deep into the light up screens of our favorite machines. Each character seems lost and unhappy but unwilling to stop, like an addict. We need our phones, we don’t know how to communicate without them.
