MODERATOR

RENATA JANISZEWSKA

Renata Janiszewska paints on an electronic canvas. Her work uses both digital and analog elements to articulate themes of chance, intoxication, shamanism, bio-degradation, and feminism. Her vocabulary of metamorphizing forms, textures, colours and paradoxical spaces suggests how the organic human, art history, and the machine realm of technology combine to create a new form. In her moving image works she marries disparate elements both to each other and to an original musical score of her own making.

WHAT IS A TECHSPRESSIONIST SALON?

Techspressionist Salons are a time and place in cyberspace where artists gather once a month to hang out, share their work and discuss matters relating to art, philosophy, and technology.

These meetups were conceived as a modern counterpart to the Surrealist salons of the 1920’s, in which artists could meet informally to socialize and discuss ideas. Techspressionism is a 100% volunteer-based international artist community.

The First Techspressionist Salon was held on September 1, 2020, and included artists Colin Goldberg, Patrick Lichty, Steve Miller and Oz Van Rosen, as well as art historian Helen Harrison, Director of the Pollock-Krasner House and Study Center, the former home and studio of painters Jackson Pollock and Lee Krasner. During this first Salon session, the working definition of Techspressionism was decided upon by the participants as: “An artistic approach in which technology is utilized as a means to express emotional experience.”

Artist Davonte Bradley (aka DAVO) proposed the idea of recording the Salons and publishing them on the Techspressionism YouTube Channel, which was implemented starting with Salon #8.

Salons are moderated by a rotating panel of artist volunteers. After the recording ends, artists are welcome to hang out for the afterparty (aka advisory board meeting), in which the topic for the next Salon is decided upon, and other community-related ideas are discussed.
