"Expressive Constructivism" V12 - 2009

I paint only because I program.

I program only because I paint.

I developed a software which is incessantly creating abstract "picture ideas" (composition).

I painted these compositions exactly like the computer using paintbrush and acrylic paint.


Program purpose was:

abstract, lines and flatly forms, convex set, metric space, constructive, elegant diffraction, torsion


I developed at first a logic (program structure) for this subject. Everything is based on the calculation of geometrical surfaces and lines, and RGB colour values. The software uses the RGB values based on the acrylic paint I use in my studio. Everything is assigned to an organized chance (random logic).

My software produces in a short time an "infinite number" of compositions. To make the pictures visible, the geometrical forms and colour blending are saved as a pixel picture. I study the pictures and make the decision which picture I paint.


In addition to pixel picture the software saves in an other file the following information (to be able to paint a exact copy of the pixel picture):

  1. Geometrical data of the forms
  2. x y coordinates of the forms
  3. RGB values and transparency values (named as colour of my acrylic paint palette)
  4. Numbers and order of the layers to be painted
