A TOUCH OF THE UNREAL | APRIL 9 – MAY 7
“The art challenges the technology, and the technology inspires the art.”
– John Lasseter (Director)
In the digital realm experience is virtual. I paint in an alluring world within the machine where the tools of my production fully absorb my attention. My touch, translated to the screen, explores the infinitesimal possibilities of colour and simulated form. This work relates to an era when the objective was to create a contemplative and meditative painting yet we live in a time quite different from that now. My process is improvisational, wildly playful and endlessly iterative but there is the point when decisions must be made. The artwork is, of course evidence of my judgement, yet what interests me is the impact of the creative act neurologically, bodily, and societally. – ANDA KUBIS
