Digital art, now a "classic"
This 2015 spring opens in Paris with new series of works by major artists in the field of generative images and sculptures.
At Charlot Gallery, Antoine Schmitt reaches sensual expression with his series Haute Tension (High Tension). He remains true to his algorithmic use of small spots (which he calls pixels), but now adds color to swarming flows. Two flows enter in contest, if not war, with different patterns for each work. Sometimes, the flow seem nearly static (like fox example an ant heeve), sometimes they generate a quite regular pulsation (with a frequency around 10 seconds, did we feel).
The picture on side gives a poor impression of the real work, where the blue and red waves converge like diplomats and generate spirals in search of a temporary peace.
At Denise René, Santiago Torres enriches his palette of shapes and moves, in particular with striped sheets.
We feel here a sort of maturity and balance if not perfection, like a summit after the ascetif purity of their first works We could say the same about Alain Le Boucher works recently presented at Lelia Mordoch's, or Jacques Peconte (see blog///////).
None of them let place to narration or to interaction (a very small place for interaction in some woks of Torres). Then
