From digitally manipulated photographs to works that began as digital images, or were produced via computer programs, technology is at the root of the processes of many contemporary artists.

Stemming from Roy Lichtenstein who used references to graphic art and the methods of mass production to lampoon artists from Monet to the abstract expressionists, his work challenges the romantic notion that art’s value lay in the heroic marks of the artist-genius. Today, however, with the commonplace use of digital technology comes a manifest tension between deeply entrenched romantic ideals and computer-enabled methods.

The show includes a number of Winston Wachter artists who have put the technological origins of their work on display without apology. Roy Lichtenstein, Seton Smith, Elaine Reichek, Sharon Core, Margeaux Walter, Jonathan Lewis, John Gerrard and William Betts make up this exciting new show.

The art ranges from manipulated digital photographs to embroidery inspired by technology, painting to lenticulars to 3D gaming. The diverse works mesh and blend throughout the gallery to create this modern exhibition.
