When we look at artworks, we can easily realize that if it is a painting, sculpture, or computer graphics. Computer graphics have clear and straight lines, but in paintings or drawing one can see artist's touch and feel their more emotion sometimes more than computer work. However, Avery Singer's artworks at Gavin Brown enterprises made me confused to realize how the artwork is made. When I saw her works the first time, they look like computer graphic artworks. They have perfectly straight lines, a cold feeling, and it is hard to see the artist's hand touches because Avery Singer's main tool for these works is airbrush.
However, it was not computer graphics. It is the reason why I could not find any brush strokes in her paintings. Viewers can have various sight, feeling, and ideas about her airbrush paintings. These massive paintings look like virtual reality space and the computer graphics space in a scientific fiction movie. However, at the same time, I felt that these are created by old computer like 1980's when the technology was developed. Also, the colors make the paintings have cool feeling too. Blue, gray and other colors' clear and obvious contrast with dark shades are elements that make paintings seem painted on a computer.
This exhibition was very fascinating. I had time to think about if it is painting or computer graphics or what tool she used. It was the first time to think about how it is made. When I saw it, I could feel the nostalgia about my childhood because the paintings look like the old game's background I did, also made me feel that I am watching a still of movie scene. Her paintings look like putting together from the past's old style technology images to future one like Virtual Reality world. Her exhibition enterprise shows her style.
