PERFECT PAINTINGS is a series of large geometric, non-figurative acrylic paintings on canvas conceived purely on the basis of data analytics. The composition and color scheme of each work is a result of meticulous calculations automatically generated by software. The software used studies the dimensions, color palettes, and formats of the most popular paintings in contemporary history, taking elements such as the market value, mainstream cultural influences, and institutional perspectives into consideration.
Painting as a medium has persevered for thousands of years and is one of the oldest creative media and undeniably the leading medium on the art market today. This project probes the conception of an ‘ideal’ fine art object. Attempting to reconcile the past and present, the traditional and the digital within the framework of an entirely new narrative, this group of innovative forms reactivates the discourse of contemporary painting by giving it a new meaning.
