TECHSPRESSIONISM

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 in 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.

MOVEMENT

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.

"Gentle Abyss"⁠
Digital 2020⁠

When I imagine the void, I don't necessarily see something dark and ominous. It pulls you in, but it doesn't have to be a bad thing. Beauty can pull you in. A nice book, story, movie, can pull you in. The void can be gentle.⁠

"For The Curious"⁠
Digital 2020⁠
⁠.
This was the piece I crafted on live yesterday in all its glory. If you're curious about the process it took in making this, head on over and watch that video. It's a little over 30-ish minutes in length.⁠

People talk about traveling to the past and worry about changing the present by doing small things, but pretty much no one in the present thinks that they can change the future by doing something small.
