Welcome from MVR (Artist) to this introduction to pxImpressions– impressions of our  Pixel Age.
At the heart of my work are microImpressions or pxImpressions,  terms I use interchangeably.   Helpful to understand them is the following...

 

In PastelsXL works, microImpressions arise from Hard Pastel pigment grains I impress naturally by my hand while forging original works. Minute, patterned textures resulting naturally are 'microImpressions'; definitively here -- they are 'pxIm-pressions'.

 

Not readily perceived and often truly microscopic, they vary significantly in works, and between works, dramatically. In contrast to the 19C Impressionists, I do not place their colors deliberately, but instead investigate, enhance, and compose pxIm-pressions that I 'discover'.

Nonetheless, the Impressionists made them. Images below reveal pxImpressions by the Late-19C French  Impressionist  Master Edgar Degas. For best appreciation and enjoyment of Degas, please click to enlarge each.

 

 


 

Once enhanced, the ▪XL*Process magnifies luminous effects before now implausible -- as these by Degas -- to the light of day to become collectively a palpable, rich new medium for artists.


I think Degas and all the Impressionists would be thrilled. In fact, the similarities in visual qualities of pixels with flecks of paint are so great, they would have taken to pixel-painting quickly.

MVR: Nature and Virtuality

."....MVR’s works go electric with vitality, felt in swift strokes  down to minute details, which resemble dot patterns of Pointillism.

 

The difference – owing to variation in subject, light conditions, rendering, and paper media – patterns of source pixels have such tremendous variety to yield dozens of fresh artistic effects."

On the ·XL *Process* Works

"...Like everything digital today, fine-art print technology and archival paper offerings are advancing with blinding speed! ...

...For fine-grain pxims, lo-lustre  paper is ideal. There are pros and cons to both printing on canvas and final color overlays by hand,...

  ...there is flexibility thru the end as well.
