Digital art life

Anna Lorentzson art and design

My work

Painting

My work is mostly experimental. I always want to know what happens if you put this thing on this one. Will there be some great art then?

I have worked forever trying to find what art is all about and new media and computers are one of my greatest friends. Hacking art and soceity to find the basic code behind it all. I use  my knowledge of building hardware and writing software to do experiments in digital art and research our lifes and death.

 

The creation process is the same if you paint or use digital media. My work spans a lot of areas. Sometimes maybe they are to many. After art school i started out as a painter but i quickly got in to computers and the Internet. I still like to work with digital media. Exploring virtual worlds and create art for the web and games. Today i got the Oculus rift that makes it possible to bee in a alternate reality. I think art willl never be the same.

Light test for painting

I do a lot of graphic design for digital media in gaming and virtual worlds. And i love the digital camera. I do not have to work in a smelly darkroom anymore if i do not want to. I do many purely digital pictures in software and as a photographer at the hypergrid. And i also have a gallery there where i can show of my work. It is all net, servers and streaming information.

 

The road is open.

 

The work continues.

Finding my way.

Just a painting

I have been trying to find some kind of freedom in my paintings for a long time. This one i made in 1998 and its a try for something else. Moving the paint as i want, using light as i want.

I think the two of my old paintings that recently surfaced on a auction have stirred something in me again. A unfinished work and unfinished thinking around what paintings are and what i want to do with them. I do not feel so good. It bothers me and i cant sleep. I have always known that i have to get back to this but i have desperately trying to push it in front of me.

I know people like the old ones but my head is full i cant get much more in there so i need to pour things out. I think i have to go back to the studio and start some new experiments.

This time i do not know where i am going.
