The Pixel as Suprematist/Minimalist Art

Image
During the latter part of 2000, Chambers began to look at the pixel within the context of Suprematist/Minimalist art. He equated the pixel with the works of non-objective artists like Vasily Kandinsky, Barnett Newman, Mark Rothko, Ad Reinhardt, Kazimir Malevich, Piet Mondrian and others. They generated works to establish an abstract visual language of the sublime, pure color, geometric form, deep contemplation and metaphysical pursuit of the truth.http://tomrchambers.com/pixel_sup_min_art.html
The pixels or "Pixelscapes" - as he calls them - conform with many of these non-objective artists' works.

Suprematist Variations on Kazimir Malevich's "Spring Garden in Blossom" (1904)

This project comprises 30 pieces (18"x18" each for exhibition) that play on Suprematist variations of Kazimir Malevich's "Spring Garden in Blossom" (1904) after glitch treatment and magnification of the digital reproduction of the painting.

These pixel configurations ("Pixelscapes") rival works in Suprematism, Abstraction, Minimalism, Geometric, and Color Field art movements. They are brought to the forefront via this early work to celebrate Malevich's latent and ultimate creativity which gave way to Suprematism with the display of "Black Square" and other works in 1915 as part of the Last Futurist Exhibition of Paintings 0,10.
A "glitch" is a disruption in a system. Also, Glitch Art - the aestheticization of digital or analog errors - is a current, viable art form that includes workshops, lectures, performances, installations and screenings worldwide. (Wp)
