“You’re a Techspressionist when you say you are”

We are actively seeking artists who utilize technology as a means to express emotional experience.  If you relate to this approach and are interested in being listed on this page, you can  submit your work for a curatorial review by using the hashtag #techspressionism when posting your art to Instagram. Selected artists using the hashtag are reposted to the official @Techspressionism Instagram feed, and are eligible to be added to the index of Techspressionist Visual Artists posted above.

Artist included in the index are encouraged to continue using the hashtag to help “spread the meme”.  Artists in our index can leverage their inclusion and help support to the movement through the posting of the terms Techpsressionism and/or Techspressionist when describing their work, linking these terms back to Techspressionism.com, or to our Instagram feed, where the term is defined. This will help the movement gain visibility and legitimacy within the art establishment and internet at large, as well as boosting Google page rank for both this site and the individual artist websites or profiles. 

FOUNDING ARTISTS

Colin Goldberg

Colin Goldberg is an American artist born in the Bronx, New York in 1971. The artist coined the term Techspressionism in 2011 for use as the title of a solo exhibition.  It was first described as a movement in this 2014 WIRED article and was elaborated upon in this 2015 PBS interview with the artist.  Goldberg is a recipient of grants from the Pollock-Krasner Foundation and the New York State Council on the Arts.  His works reside in the permanent collections of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, Stony Brook University Hospital and the Islip Art Museum, as well as private and corporate collections. Goldberg served as a guest panelist for “Expressionism in the 21st Century”, a symposium held at the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center in East Hampton, and was a guest speaker at the Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill, NY for PechaKucha Hamptons in 2019.

Oz Van Rosen

Oz Van Rosen is an artist based in New York  and Southampton. Using the underlying technology of photography, her art is created by randomly corrupting, bending and destroying digital data in an image to create an unpredictable aesthetic. By turning pixels into paintbrushes, she pushes the boundaries of photography into new visual possibilities, creating unique images that defer to the whim of technology.  In this Beyond Photography interview, Oz describes her work as Abstract Techspressionism.  Oz studied art at the New York School of the Arts.
