Hey Mr Bojangles, 2020, 200 x 160 cm, oil on canvas
Abstraction is achieved through digital processes as well as painting.
Volo Bevza is concerned with the ubiquitousness of the Internet and its effect on our daily lives. The way we look at pictures has particularly changed in recent years. Bevza’s focus is on the relevance of panel painting in the post-digital age. In his artistic practice visual information is translated via software and then transferred to canvas. Abstraction is achieved through digital processes as well as painting, whose alleged illusionism is revealed to be a lie. The transformation from the real to the digital and nally into the analog painting leads multiple connotations of the painterly result. This demonstrates the unique potential of intertwining digital, computer-generated art with the painter’s own handwriting.
