Elevations & Aerials (2013)






























The "Elevations & Aerials" series of images are created with a custom algorithm whereby I transform my own photographs into fragmented, pixelated forms that take on an architectural quality, as if viewed as an elevation or aerial view of a structure or area of land.

While not yet considered an art movement, the "New Aesthetic" is manifesting in a new look in art that is more pixelated in nature, or makes reference to computer-based or natively digital art. As Roy Lichtenstein was inspired by the Ben-Day Dot, I am inspired by the pixel as a way to recontextualize art. The works begin with pixels but I reshape them into new works that have a high resolution and print quality. Any of the pieces can be scaled up to very large sizes and can be printed on many types of media.


"Masdar Strip" is also in this series.

Since they are vector art, they have a very flat color look, and can be scaled up considerably.
