Bobby Haulotte is an artist working primarily in painting and installation. In his paintings, hard edge shapes made up of saturated color, various marks, and fragments of images are used to physically reconstruct digital collages. Visual elements from various contexts such as memes, computer vision, algorithmic painting tools, and snapshots of miscellaneous textures are applied to alter the compositions, creating a chaotic arrangement of references to contemporary experience. His work is influenced by the effects of technology on image making and sharing, the mediated nature of perception, and cognitive biases shared by humans and the artificial intelligence we create. Bobby lives and works in Kansas City, MO. He received his BFA in painting from the Kansas City Art Institute in 2018 and has shown in exhibitions at spaces including H&R Block Artspace, Leedy-Voulkos Art Center, Haw Contemporary, Plug Projects, George A. Spiva Center for the Arts, Front/Space, and Mount Analogue.
