"Up to now, there have been no pictorial attempts without constant recourse to the referential selection of the artist. Past and recent painting before the invention of the pixel has been subjugated by the shapes of nature and man, waiting to be liberated, to speak in its own language independent of forced reason and sense." - Taki Murakishi. The Museum of New Art presents
INVENTING THE PIXEL: Abstraction in the 21st Century until September 15.
So-called abstract painting has never been wholly original, has never been its own end. Such creation exists only where art presents images that take nothing from what has been imagined, neither repeating or modifying a particular artist's vision, but inventing its own, liberated from both and all.
One must move toward an art where everything must be sacrificed to the truths and necessities of a new millennium, toward those elements of a pure and eternal art, full and infinitely beyond our known experience. One must move toward the pixel and beyond. - Taki Murakishi, from Inventing the Pixel
