Exhibition themes and ideas

The input of digital technology into analogue art has produced a noticeable effect The practices of painting and drawing have been enriched and invigorated by new technological processes. Artists are consciously and unconsciously incorporating digital aesthetics into their artworks; screen-like smoothness, pixilation, high resolution clarity, and the depiction of glitches are all emergent properties of contemporary representational art.

Post-digital age artworks reveal the subtle influences that digital technology is having on our perception and interpretation of the world. The world has been transformed by digital technology, things look different since the internet, the artworks in this exhibition reflect that difference.
