PIXEL PIGMENT : Opening Reception
Spectra Art Space
Join Us for the Opening Reception of “PIXEL PIGMENT” an ALEO solo exabition.
The pixel has come to dominate what we view today. Screens are everywhere, flashing pixels across like shooting stars. Pigments are how the pixel come into being. Unlike pigments, with out the computer monitor, the pixel does not exist.
For me, working by hand feels more natural and relaxing. It is a bridge between our ever evolving digital culture and the very essence of the human condition. We are not the machines that we build, we are imperfect and so is painting. In this series of work I created every image first digitally. I used photoshop to sketch out my designs, letting my stylus pen move freely across the digital drawing pad. Using source imagery and the basic tools of photoshop, I created a series of work that represents snapshots of fast paced life we experience today.
Human form mixed with bright flashy expressive mark making, is the representation of the juxtaposition of calmness and chaos of human emotion and experience. The contemporary painter, Erik Jones, inspired this process. Using the computer to “mock up” designs before executing them on canvas with traditional media. Crossing abstract forms that can stand alone in composition with the characters I choose to portray.
