I always try to explore the limits of figurative painting, be it in format, concept or documentation. Figurative painting runs like a red thread through human history and so I see post-digital painting as a logical step that opens up completely new perspectives and possibilities for figurative painting. Since the pandemic I've been using glitchy 3D scans as a template to portrait our algorithm-self e.g. or simply to have more freedom with a scan over a limited photo.  Lately I've been using "bad" beta versions of AI image generators. I find it genius, when they are still making so many "mistakes" that they create completely new viewing habits, comparable to children's drawings or "art brut" ( problematic term ). I am spending nights experimenting and choosing AI images, mixing them together and adding 3D scan images. It is still only a rough template and in the painting process everything changes.

When artificial intelligence tries to copy us, I try to paint like artificial intelligence: The basic principles of AI art are seriality, mutation, morphing, imitation, emulation and simulation
