Description: John Pomara is an American abstract artist who lives and works in Dallas, Texas. He was born in Dallas in 1952 and received a MFA and a BFA from East Texas State University; he also attended the Empire State Studio Arts Program, New York. Pomara’s works explore the idiosyncrasies of the Internet age: increasingly impersonal communication, the inseparable bond between our lives and technologies, and the anxiety we feel when the virtual infrastructure fails us. In his works, Pomara unpacks speed in the digital era, from the instantaneous connection of email to the halting slowness of buggering videos, uncooperative downloads, and virus-laden technology.
