Series of paintings inspired by video conversation Skype with my family in Chile. Screenshots taken during our conversations were painted on paper splitting the basics colours (red, green and blue) as a computer uses to reproduce an image on a screen. Once painted, these images was cut and mixed and glued together in order to reconstruct the color.
The process giving rise to these paintings seeks to analogize algorithms composing images in LCD screens, thus creating a parallel between a physical and a digital language. The works are composed of red, green and blue colors (the three colors constituting the pixels that structure screens), thereby approaching the Additive color theory (light) by “physical” pigments.
The layout is organized in a raster*, in which the pixels will compose the structure of the works. The composition is created by technical accidents or “glitches” occurring during the process of “transmission of information”. Some “bits” of papers fall, unglued from the support resulting in a random lack of data, which is supplanted by the background, creating new colors and flecks of information on a monochromatic (or three-chromatic) surface.
