Attention Economy

"Attention Economy" is unlike Jackson Pollock paintings except in its vehement, even violent expressivity. Employing a Gerhard Richter squeegee technique, with this abstract painting I verge into a more chaotic realm than Richter's measured works usually do. "Attention Economy" is not only a reflection on, but an exact depiction of the fleeting nature of the "value" of social media popularity.
