Pragmatic Beauty in the Digital Age
"I use the computer as the tool, but painting is the language of deliberation that is running through my head. I do not want to just repaint an illustration of what the computer can do, but to push the pixels themselves as paint, and to layer imagery and veils to create depth and volume. Like painting, this process can engage nuance and subtlety. It also has the ability to alter an image in a way that no other medium can deliver or predict." - Deborah Oropallo
I have been way over my head with school and my own work for the past weeks, this blog is not dead, just dorment for the time being. In the mean time, enjoy Deborah Oropallo's beautiful and seductive portraits, prime examples of how the computer operates as a vital tool in contemporary art. Once I get through the thick of this weeks obligations, I will return to my post(s).
