Painted Pixellation
by sabine7 / September 19, 2006

Elwira Sofia Schott is a Berlin artist whose canvases, though based on photorealism, bring to mind a television screen or computer monitor. At first sight, Schott’s work looks pixellated, but upon drawing closer, one can see that the squares are painted and filled with other shapes and forms, often circles and ovals. The pictures must been seen from a distance to be understood which brings to mind the intended dualism by the artist, the plays between colour and form, proximity and distance, mechanics of the technique and the organic nature of the shapes and colours.
