Paintings and Details
(1990 – 1992) (by Gordana Novakovic: large-scale, oil-on-canvas combined with silk-screen printed computer generated patterns of algorithms)
In Gordana Novakovic's paintings, organic, painted forms (which originated in drawings of cells) are juxtaposed with computer-generated algorithms.
The method of layering painted and digitized material was developed in her first experiments with computer art in the mid-eighties.
At that point she had already established her individual artistic language based upon elements of micro and macro cosmos.
These paintings serve as the basic material which will be digitally processed to form the virtual universe.
The overall impression of the virtual world will be that of a changeable abstract painting and will distinguish the visual language of 'Algorithmica' from the computer game industry which utilize computer generated images predominately.
