The Point of Pointilism

Posted on July 14, 2016 by Peter Hyatt | 0 Comments

I've long wondered how to represent aspects of the city in a way that seemed/felt original. This latest series of images is much less concerned with mega-sized files or huge capture chips. It's about the visual 'whisper' or veil. These images ask the viewer to peer into the granular qualities much like the work of the Pointillist masters of the 19th century. I have tried to imbue my images with a similar technique but rather here using a screen to act as a filter. These images also vary our perception depending upon the viewers' distance from the image. Close-up increases the abstraction. Stepping back clarifies the view. An intense colour spectrum with the digital paint-brush produces a contemporary take on an earlier idea and a unique perspective of everyday places, people and events. Stay tuned for further developments.
