A Thousand Digits — per square millemeter

August 23, 2009


When the artist Josh Siegel displayed his latest painting, I admired it greatly. His early orientation had been to abstract impressionaism, but he had lately been mostly a figurative painter. The picture illustrated above is his first abstract in a decade. One speculates as to what effect current digital facilities for graphic creation had on this (to my mind, very fine) stylistic departure. His more usual stock-in-trade can be seen here.

Very excitingly, the actual process of creation can be traced online. Look here to see how he made the painting.

I find it exhilarating.
