Analogue after Digital

Stefan Kubler, Aljarn, 2007, collaged postcards, 148 x 104 cm

Somewhere between Chuck Close's grid portraits that pull information inward and Tom Friedman's three dimensional interpolated packaging that explode outward. Stefan Kubler's Aljarn jumps forward within its two dimensional plain - a distribution process using multiple copies of a single printed image.

Another wry smile

Mike Ruiz, Replaced Mona Lisa, 2011, Oil on Canvas

As described by Mike Ruiz;
The Mona Lisa with the lady selected then put through Content-Aware Fill (a Photoshop CS5 tool that automatically generates content based on the existing surrounding content of the image and fills in selected area). The resulting image is a potential landscape as interpreted by the software. The image was sent to a painting manufacturer in China where an oil painting was produced.
