ConTEMPOrary Art  XL Works

    By-Hand      Pxl-Paint Media Mixed

From Michael Victor, the Artist, welcome to Contemporary px Impressionism -– for today's Pixel Zoom populations. While at the heart are 21C Landscape & Life, the source of works are micro impressions I call 'pxImpressions'-- 'pxims' for short.


In Pastels·XL Works (behind), pxims arise from lucent pigment grains I lay-in by-Hand  while forging Hard Pastel works. Barely visible lying 'under the hood', pxim texture patterns & color effects vary widely on their own.


When truly microscopic, pxims vary even more dramatically. In contrast to19C Impressionism, area colors & effects are never fixed precisely; instead once scanned I 'zoom-in' to discover, finesse & interpret them, and then via the XL Works Process magnify the by-Hand composition entirely.

Even so the 19C made pxims, as here by 19C Master Edgar Degas from the National Gallery of Art. Click to open.



 The ▪XL Process magnifies such luminous effects before now implausible, as by Degas -- to the light of day -- 
to become collectively a palpable, rich new medium.

I think Degas and his 19C contemporaries would be thrilled. As pixels themselves are flecks of light across spectra of color,
they would have enthusiastically embraced
painting with pixels.

 see more on how pxIm-pressions and the XL Process evolved.

XL *Process

"...Like everything digital today, fine-art print technology & archival paper offerings advance w blinding speed!

     Fine pxims need sheen paper.

There are pros/cons to canvas prints & final color by hand, indicative of great flexibility & decision-making 
required through 3 ·XL*Process phases."

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 subjects, light conditions, techniques,  paper media, etc – patterns of source pixels have such tremendous variety to yield dozens of fresh artistic effects."
