From Michael Victor, the Artist, welcome to Contemporary px Impressionism -– for today's Pixel ▪Zoom populations. While at the heart are 21c Life & Landscape (like art in Late 19c) , the source of works are micro 'pxIm-pressions'-- '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 'under the hood', pxim texture patterns & color effects vary radically on their own.
They vary even more dramatically when truly microscopic. In contrast to19c Impressionism, area colors & effects are never fixed precisely. Instead once scanned I 'zoom-in' to discover & interpret them, and then via the '▪XL Process' magnify the by-Hand composition entirely. That's how all works start, even really complex ones from 'ConTempo 2020'.
Even so the 19c made pxims. Slide 3 illustrates samples by Master Pastelist Edgar Degas. Please click and Zoom-in far.
The ▪XL Process magnifies luminous effects as by Degas, before now implausible -- to the light of day.
I think Degas and his19c contemporaries would be thrilled! Degas pushed the limits of new media, mixes untried. And as pixels themselves are flecks of light, its no stretch to think they would have found painting with pixels irresistable.

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