Stuart Faromarz Batchelor combines oil painting with graphics programming, showcasing a beautiful union between traditional and programmatic art techniques. “Painting with code and coding with paint”
The abstract series, Impact, is inspired by the physical energy and explosive action of gestural brushwork. By combining the human, gestural marks, with the machine, graphics algorithms, S.F.Batchelor’s signature practice remixes and expands on abstract brushwork with a modern aesthetic.
Being neither wholly 2D shapes nor 3D forms, Impact #1 transitions from one to the other; an exploration of the untapped potential of human capability married with technology.
The works have been composed by feeding computer programs images of oil paintings live, as they are painted, working between painting and coding in the same session. The final image is a union of both the artist's hand and the computer's generative simulations.
