Between Human & Machine Interview with Vickie Vainionpää, Adam Hencz, δημοσίευση Artland MagazineMarilena Pateraki
Abstract painter Vickie Vainionpää’s work investigates the fragile relationship between humans and machines. The emerging Canadian painter is concerned with the impact of technology on the process of painting and her considerations are deeply reflected in her compositions. Based on 3D graphics drafted by generative algorithms and carefully painted by hand using oil on linen, her creative process entangles humane and digital processes.
This year, there was a lot of buzz around generative art with images—made using generative machine learning models such as DALL-E—filling social media feeds on Instagram and Reddit. Generative AI is changing art and design, and this constant change and interference should warn us and slow us down. Vainionpää joins a network of painters who reflect on this phenomenon and urges us to gaze upon physical paintings in a more considerate way.
