Techspressionism: Digital and Beyond Artist Statement by Felix Rothschild
I am interested in the uncanny and disorienting sides of visual digital technologies as they interrupt more traditional perceptions of self, order and place.
Humans are incredibly complex, a quality we share with the machines and algorithms we have developed. Finding beauty in errors has led me to an exploration of glitch-related aesthetics.
As a youth, my early work was informed by the German Romanticist artist Caspar David Friedrich, as well as Expressionist painters such as Paul Klee, Kandinsky, and Franz Marc. However, I seldom cite my influences as I prefer unbiased interpretation of my imagery. The different modes of human perception fascinates me and a single piece of work can often convey a multitude of interpretations.
Technology has no boundaries and is the perfect playground for curious minds. Taking a Techspressionist approach has enabled me to explore not only the world in which I live but also the world within myself.
