The first time you create a wallpaper for your desktop, you don’t really know what you are doing. You end up with too much photoshop effects. And probably a jpg you unduly expanded to subsequently blur and unsharp. You know. You did too. So did i. That’s not the point, though. At first the wallpapers are supposed to be ouvres in themselves, but as time goes by and you get more control, you start creating images that fit with the icons you have there, that you see every day.
So the familiarity brings some strains to the work, some structure. It makes one wonder: Does renaissance painting cue us to the painters’ social position? Does it reveal, for example, a duality between the themes in the paintings selected by priests (St. Anthony’s martyrdom) and the existential attitude subtly intertweened there in the painting technique (each living being is an unwavering beam of light)?
And if so, what was the point of the work, again?
