Streams of binary code mimic that of brushstroke, hardware now replicating a palette of possibilities.
Created on a variety of digital devices, Aaron Scheer’s works utilise the digital realm to expand what painting can be and mean today by combining elements of collage, photography and painterly technique. The artist's process involves the use of free digital gestures, keyboard commands and touchpad swipes, which once completed, can be read as an abstracted version of contemporary digital activities. Full of vibrant and vivid color palettes, Scheer's works are infused with distortions, static, and blips that contrast with subtle gradations of luminous color saturations. Through his art, Scheer questions the idea of the human in technology and the technological in the human. Thereby, allowing him to explore the challenges that an increasingly digitised world presents, such as virtual matter, perceptions of the real, automated production, big data, technocracy and contemporary working cults.
