The advent of photography encouraged painters to explore new avenues of expression; the computer likewise has broadened photography’s horizons. The photographs in Pixel Perfect have been created by examining the digital structure of the camera’s capture.
Each of the works in Pixel Perfect is made from a single photograph. The representational appearance has been abandoned and the basic building blocks of the digital structure, the pixels, have been explored. Once identified, various filters are used to enhance the elements of color, line and form to give them a life of their own. The result is a new image that stands or falls on its own intrinsic aesthetic qualities.
The originals of the photographs in Pixel Perfect have been printed for gallery exhibitions as archival inkjet on canvas prints. They are displayed in related series that explore an idea or theme much like a series of traditional photographs and presented chronologically to show the evolution of their development.
