Artist Statement

I am a digital painter exploring the new medium of vector. My painting developes in cycles from figurative to abstract and back to figurative. They are two poles of a magnet. Critics don’t like this but Picasso did it too so it can’t be totally wrong. To me a painting is the reflection of a human soul. Only if the soul is deep enough the painting will be deep enough. Of course the painter’s soul is in the painter’s blind spot and few collectors are able to look through the veil of time. What interests me in vector painting is that vector is a balanced cooperation between the artist and the computer. Lines forms and colors are made by hand and behind the screen the computer ties them all to mathematical formulas known as Bezier curves. This gives them more simplicity more contrast and a higher resolution than can be achieved by hand. Colors are pure monochromes or very fine computer-calculated gradients. While there is hardly any art in vector yet, its amazing property of fixed resolution makes it popular in advertising. ‘Ceci est un oeuf’ 2015 expresses my initial dislike of vector. The hard lines, monochrome colors and perfect gradients seemed to limit the emotional palette to messages of pure happiness and joy famous from Matisse’s cut-outs or the brutal surrealistics of Daly.
