galerierichard ). The American branch of the Parisian art dealer has an exhibition with paintings by Joseph Nechvatal, called "Odyssey pandemOniom" (through December 16, 2015).
centrality of his oeuvre revolves around computer-generated viruses that
he created in C++ in collaboration with programmer Stephane Sikora. In
his paintings, the computer virus surfaces as the active agent which
manipulates and corrupts the information stored in the image (the host),
decreasing its integrity. This corruption allows Nechvatal to use the
virus as a painting implement; therefore it can be viewed as a
constructive, creative process" (presse ).
I like the cool elegance and the way the pictures are composed - computer virus or not. You can see here my favorites from the show, as usual a very subjective selection.
