Painting in the digital era

Painting, the act of pure Contingency.

As a painter, I recall the intense anxiety felt when facing a blank canvas: the fear of failure, to start wisely and the impossibility to preview the final result. The emotion of creation, a dense probability mist that one can not explain until we take the risk of first choices.

Contingency(*) is what separates this endeavor from the frigid instantaneous click of the camera. True performance starts when we apply the first "brush strokes" to the original photo and execute a plethora of sophisticated digital techniques to guide our steps to paths never wondered.
