In “Digital Divide,” de Meijer’s message isn’t buried in layers of symbolism: Her subjects grip iPhones and wear earbuds or Google Glass. Half-realistic and half-cartoonish, they peer back at the viewer, expressionless, as if hypnotized. The titles of her works further convey de Meijer’s cynicism about technological dependence in the modern world: featured works include Linked In (2014) and Virtual Love (2014). In other works, like the eerie Girl Scouts portrait Soul Mates (2012) or the old-fashioned-looking Stand By Your Man (2011), there’s no trace of technology, only a palpable sense of the tension that inspires the artist. De Meijer is interested in the effects of postmodern society on human behavior—how the forces of technological change shape us and transform us, even when we’ve accidentally left our iPhones at home, even when we’re not actually online.
