This, as well as other series, are presented as duraflex chromogenic prints created with a large-format photo laser imager. Each print contains some 500 color values and approximately one million fine "brush strokes" carefully distributed across the surface. I have created unique, custom-made computer software needed for each specific project, rather than using commercially available programs, which limit one's creativity within the parameters of those programs. The work is possible because, with a computer, I have access to an almost infinite palette of colors. Moreover, I can precisely position these color values in minute locations across the computer's virtual canvas. The effects achieved in this way are different than those with traditional painting, pushing and extending the way painting and art can be conceived and made. At the same time, the boundaries between different media (photography, painting and video) become even narrower: the final output of this works is as a digital photograph, or digitally printed canvas, or projection on a large LCD screen. But regardless of the media the content remains that of a painting.
      The project "Straightening the Line" is an homage to the straight motion, in the same way that the gestural painters made an homage to curvilinear motion. Gestural paintings are the outcome of the curvilinear natural movement of the arms (gests). What would happen if those curvilinear motions become linear? This is what I want to explore with this project: the creation of paintings produced with solely linear (angestural) motions.
