Examining the resurgent interest in painting and the proliferation of new digital media in recent years, this generously illustrated book delineates painting's complex relationship with information technology. In a survey that begins in the mid-twentieth century, long before the birth of the Internet, this book traces painting's capacity to digest and transform other media, even as its own legitimacy has been questioned. Featuring the work of numerous renowned artists, from Sigmar Polke to Nicole Eisenman and from Cy Twombly to Amy Sillman, the book examines how painting has addressed digital technology as it relates to
human experience and perception, and includes three in-depth
essays and additional texts by influential thinkers from the field.
Comprehensive and lavishly illustrated, the book presents a
wide range of works that reconsider the assumed opposition
of the digital and the analog, the human and the technological,
arguing that painting has served as a means to represent--and
even enact--new media. This book affirms the ongoing vitality
of the medium of painting in the midst of a digital world.
