Liquid Pixel is an exhibition of Brendan A. de Montigny's and Alex Sutcliffe's recent works that introduce new digital technologies and screen-based tools to the traditional painting medium.
Liquid Pixel explores the boundaries between analogue and digital spaces, contemporary methods of creation, and cyber aesthetics. De Montigny and Sutcliffe each combine digital photo-editing, 3D modeling, and virtual reality tools with traditional painting techniques in their practices. For de Montigny, his art objects collage references and motifs from assembly diagrams, automobile manuals, and model kit instructions together until abstraction is reached through low-relief layers. Sutcliffe’s work observes how two-dimensional digital tools can reshape painterly spaces by translating and combining photo-editing, 3D modeling, printing, projection, and painting.
