Programme

Pointillisme : Provence

On the occasion of the second edition of the Biennale des Imaginaires Numériques, the artist Quayola won the 3rd International Prize of the Vasarely Foundation - Chronicles. Created this year, the work Pointillism: Provence, will take as a starting point the surrounding landscapes of the Sainte-Victoire that the artist scanned in the fall and spring.

Pointillism: Provence is a new work that continues Quayola's exploration of high-precision laser scanning systems and their inherited imperfections. Drawing parallels between historical painting traditions and computational aesthetics, this project speculates on new machine-created landscape paintings. While reproducing conditions similar to those of late 19th century plein air painters, natural landscapes are actually observed and analyzed through sophisticated technological devices and reassigned to new modes of visual synthesis.
