About the Book
New Mexico's finest – In search of the perfect color palette, Dr. Woohoo's artwork explores the visualization of colors. Woohoo uses software he developed to generate his artwork by extracting millions of color pixels in each image, analyzing and organizing the color data and then building the composition with absolute precision. Embracing the past, Woohoo uses archival pigment inks when printing the 16 x 10" (40.64 x 25.4 cm) single editions onto art-, rice- and japanese papers using a variety of techniques including underprinting, overprinting and gelatin transfers onto frescos. The book includes over 100 new pieces, a discussion on color between Dr. Woohoo and Darius A Monsef IV, founder of COLOURlovers, and a secret web address that enables you to enter a private gallery that displays the final prints, special editions, as well as the opportunity to purchase the single editions.
Dr. Woohoo is a New Mexico based artist who is programming a path from code back to the natural world. To create his art he combines the intelligence of algorithms, the creative expressiveness of organic media with behaviors found in natural systems. Transforming ideas-to-pixels-to-atoms, Woohoo sculpts the strings of code from an abstract artistic vision into color, painting and sculpting applications to generate his contemporary and sophisticated artwork into prints, videos, installations, glass, ceramic and metal sculptures. Woohoo’s art plays with the extremes of formlessness and structure. In this book, Woohoo explores ornate but highly structured geometric circles. They have a glass-like component as well, but are flat, like stained glass. The effect ranges from subdued, dense, and composed to the ‘60s pop culture color explosions reminiscent Peter Max.
