MOVEMENT

Techspressionism is introduced as a new art-historical term to describe fine artists using digital technology to convey subjective, emotional content.

Techspressionism distinguishes expressive fine art results from such genres as “digital art,” which can include animated movies, and video games, as well as  from “new media” works that do not embody convincing artistic intent.

The subjective lens of the individual artist (rather than the product of a corporate studio) is what connects Techspressionism to its predecessor, ExpressionismExpressionists presented the world from a subjective perspective, distorting it radically in order to evoke moods or ideas, seeking to express their emotional experience rather than physical reality.

A core group of artists have begun working together to develop momentum for the adoption of the term Techspressionism through the planning of an international juried exhibition to be followed by a physical exhibition at Southampton Arts Center in Spring 2022.  We meet biweekly at our Techspressionist Salon artist meetups on Zoom to discuss art and technology. Further information on the origins of the term Techspressionism is available here.

The Techspressionist Manifesto, a document that draws inspiration from artistic manifestos of the past (including Marinetti’s Futurist Manifesto and Breton’s Surrealist Manifesto) is a open-ended document subject to ongoing revisions from group members.

We encourage artists who identify with the approach of using technology as a means to express emotional experience to self-identify as Techspressionists by including the hashtag #techspressionism on Instagram and other social media platforms.

We are actively reviewing images using the hashtag and reposting a curated selection of these works to the official @techspressionism account.  Artists whose work is reposted are invited to be included in an online index of Techspressionist visual artists.

#techspressionism

I built an immersive steel aquarium sculpture installation portraying French marine biologist Jeanne Villepreux-Power. She made the first aquarium and discovered the Paper Nautilus mollusks secrete liquid to heal its shell when it breaks. After stepping thru a portal, people experience her discoveries, her challenges, and also hear perspectives via various visual media reflecting thoughts from different time periods that are projecting on the floor and four walls surrounding those inside of this 360° aquatic environment.
BUT due to Covid-19, no one may enter the physical installation for a l-o-o-ng time so using still photos and the interior video projections, I made an immersive 360° video to virtually simulate being inside the aquarium experiencing Villepreux-Power’s animated stories surrounding you without wearing Virtual Reality headsets.

Quietly, quietly, 2021. Digital drawing. I haven’t posted a drawing in a while. I had one of those “What if I can’t draw anything anymore?” episodes. A lot of other creative endeavours in the meantime. I’m happy with this one. #yeg #yegart #yegartisits #edmonton #edmontonart #edmontonartists #canadianartists #artistsofinstagram #womenartists #womenartistsofinstagram #digitalart #abstractart #abstract #monochromaticart #digitalabstraction #digitalabstractart #digitalabstract #deannsteinhasinoffart #iseartists #techspressionist

Entitled "Gossipers", the viewer can visualize two persons chatting with one another. The ambiguity of the various components transcend clear messages. It is no wonder that Rorschach tests are dependent on subjectivity.

This series of work was developed from Rorschach's ink blots. Adding a Z-axis it became possible to convert the two-dimensional sign into a three-dimensional object. It is like holding your imagination in your hand.
