Digital art is all the rage nowadays, even I contribute to the cerebral sphere of experimenting with pixels. There's something really valuable in playing with colour and form in the digital realm, it shows us things that we'd simply never have thought to produce. I'm always amazed at what computers can do with colour and line, and when we add the human element of creative design, the two can merge to form a truly awe inspiring phenomenon.
Not only do we find inspiration in new works of art, produced from scratch by artists like myself and betters, taking the technology to works that were produced before it existed is something else we can do. When we take the well known and loved work of someone like Gustav Klimt then give it the twenty-first century treatment, we get something magical. France's very own Atelier des Lumières, the Parisian digital art centre, has installed a new exhibition demonstrating this compelling theme.
An immersive and spellbinding tour of Klimt's work is on display surrounded by mirrors. Each section concentrates on one of the painter's many areas of interest shown through his career. From the neo-classicalism of Vienna, female and natural beauty, the Succession, and on how Kilmt inspired Schiele, to name but a few, wanders around this exhibit leave us in no doubt as to how prolific and hard working Gustav Klimt was.
Created to honour the artist on the centenary of his death, this modern day art show brings the old master to light again. We probably all know one or two of his images. The Kiss is a really famous painting. To me it's not a romantic image, I get the sense of force and well mannered acceptance which is the opposite of what relationships ought to be about. That's my feelings of it, I'm sure you have your own.
