Fact; The world has gone digital.
It would be absurd not to relate at all to the digitalization of our society. As art is a reflection/ commentary on society, it appeared obvious to me that sooner than later I would have to relate and “face the music”. My interest in digital came with some reluctance somewhere towards the end of the lockdowns. I was beginning to mass artworks done during that period. I realized that I want to go all in with my art. I also realized that the platform of display was changing. Online gallery sites were popping up all over. Instagram was a great store front. The potential to reach the masses seemed probable. Hence, my website, hence my writing blogs, hence my interactions on various platforms on the web. This is the obvious and an absolute necessity to be seen in today’s world.
The digitalization flowed over into other areas as well, into areas of creativity. Cute apps did wonders to art work and photographs. Cut serious issues of composition and preciseness in the artistic work process. I began to like it; sitting in n armchair with my phone and fooling around with a photo that I took or working on a drawing that I uploaded. It was a game. It brought the fun and inquisitees' back into art.
“Between the field and the sea” is one of these works. It started as a drawing on paper. The idea is one that intrigues me; the happenings between the sea and the city. Usually, a field or a park. Often the urban life conflicts with the nature and has me contemplating. I have been doing a few pieces, both on paper and on canvas, with similar subject matter. I uploaded the drawing and began playing through one of the artsy apps on my phone. I loved the outcome! I even printed it on glass. The creative options are endless. The digital has become another one of my tools along side of the pencils, ink and brushes.
