From the artist:
“Sky To A Machine” is the original text I typed into the prompt of a visual AI tool just to see how it would render back images to me. The initial results were exciting and so I spent another hour refining the prompt with additional modifiers until I reached a composition I wanted to paint. Is AI a valid tool for use in exploring artistic expression as I just described or has it somehow corrupted my creativity? The AI debate regarding the art-making process has been very loud with artists posting "NO AI" across social media and lobbying platforms and galleries to remove AI-generated "works". One of the biggest concerns is that the use of AI in art may lead to a dehumanization of the creative process and the concept of “artist”. As an oil & acrylic painter, I do not feel that AI is a substitute for my human creativity. Instead, I find it to be a powerful tool that can be used to augment and enhance my creativity. By leveraging the power of machine learning algorithms to generate new source material, I have been able to create works of art in a more efficient manner than my previous tools of internet image searching and Photoshop editing. My painting process itself is not changed and during the evolution of transforming the source material into a painting my own interpretation ultimately becomes the final work produced. In this show, you will find experimental compositions from keywords such as "sky to a machine", "robot riot protests", "visual kei punk portraits", tyrannosaurus rex visual shock", and "walls Mexico border". All in the quest to tell stories about our modern condition as we navigate the digital age.
