Dave Archer Gallery

Now visit the online Web site of Dave Archer, famous artist and inventor
of Electric Glass Paintings, created with huge voltage electrical discharges

Painter Dave Archer is known worldwide for space paintings partially
accomplished by painting on
clear sheets of "reverse glass" with millions of volts of
electricity. Archer's high-voltage painting
technique has been demonstrated on over two hundred television shows,
including "Eye To Eye with
Connie Chung", "Beyond 2000", and Discovery Channel's, "The Next Step".
Dave Archer's work
has also been featured on Star Trek and in Omni and National
Geographic Magazines, as well as
Book Covers and presented in dozens of Art Gallery and Museum
Shows worldwide.

Dave Archer began his glass painting career, nearly three decades ago
in 1970, as a joint study with
colleague Ron Russell. The two painters worked together in the same
studio --- a Story all its own
--- for three years.

Archer's Electric Machines are unique in the world and specifically
designed for experimental
painting. Working with a hand-held wand, Dave Archer manipulates high
voltage arcs --- from a few
inches to nine feet in length --- using those arcs to influence wet
paint on sheets of glass and thus
achieving cloudy impressions. Archer then completes the planets,
comets, and other forms by hand,
using dozens of common and invented art techniques.

 

Rick Duim

One of the things I don't like about a lot of digital art is that it's
"cold" looking. I've made a conscious effort to give a more "analog"
feeling in my works, and to use warmer and/or vibrant colors to "warm"
the scene.

Ute Kersting

I started as an artist working in oil, water color, mixed water color media, charcoal, pencil and guoache. "I picked up the digital computer art and really enjoy the work too." Mood, impulse, energy and theme direct the beginning of each art piece. With evolving forms, shapes and chosen color scheme my painting or images take on a life of their own. Thereafter the viewer later becomes a co-creator. My objective is to provide ever deeper meaning for the participant. Layer by layer and application over application is the procedure of my work.

Born in Germany, I had my basic training at the Academy of Art in Hamburg, later studying in Canada and the USA. I attended the Intensive Seminars and also workshops with well-known instructors. After developing my own style, I still am never satisfied and always strive to grow and explore. Private and commercial collectors have purchased my paintings and images, locally and internationally. In juried shows I have received numerous awards. My Web site will show samples of my newest work in painting as well as in computer art.

Originally working in the field of literature, Benjamin Britton moved into video and computers in the early 80's, creating videotapes and installations, videodiscs, and now is working with interactive digital media as an artform. His principle interests center on the relationship of individuals to their society and on the issue of interactive composition. Britton is presently an Assistant Professor of Electronic Art in the School of Fine Arts at the University of Cincinnati, and is engaged in creative research with virtual reality, the Internet, and optical media.

Along the way, she invites you to explore her creative spoofs on American commericialism like "Coke Depression" and Dr. Scholl's, "Not Just a Foot Powder". Cnet.com's ezine, Zeppo, feature art article, "The Digital Paintbrush", starts off with an interview with the artist.

 

Glenn Southern


EVOLUTE OR LEAVE....

When the time came that we have no more air, we took it from nature. Large
crustations that infested the waters of the world used their weed like
fronds to extract what little oxygen the ocean contained. It was only
logical that we should then take it from them. Problems is, natural
selection. Those of us who stayed got so dependant on them that we became
`Very` attatched to each other, and I do mean attatched.

Debbi Germann

The artist is originally from Texas but now resides in the state of Washington. Originally a ceramist she now creates using the computer. An Irish Texan who moved to Bainbridge Island, Washington

Artist's Statement about her work in general-

My work is based upon the premise that our similarities are greater than our
differences and that, at this time in history, we are able to transcend our
separateness and to understand, as at no time in the past, our interdependence.
Although I was trained as a painter, I have always been a collage-maker, both in
my art work and in my life, working with what I have and what I find. I use
historical and current images as the source material for my work, enlarging on the
fragmented political, ethical and social meanings they suggest by combining,
layering, manipulating and merging them into provocative statements or questions.

 

Roman Versotko



Most of Roman's computer art consists of thousands of pen strokes with
only occasional brush strokes. His early computer art includes several paintings like the one above
plotted with paint-brushes rather than ink pens. These works bear a remakable resemblance to
some of his earlier hand-painted work. The "brushing" instructions follow stroke-generating
procedures he composed to achieve a computer simulation of early 20th century automatism. He
viewed these procedures as a form of "computer automatism". The original routine that requested a
brush for each stroke has evolved over the years acquiring more calligraphic features. In 1995
"self-inking" sumi brushes were adapted to fit the plotter's drawing arm so continuous script-like
forms could be achieved .See "Epigenetic Painting: Software as Genotype" , Leonardo 23:1
(1990).

 

 

Pygoya

Founding artist of The Rave Webmuseum of Cyberart; defined criteria for "Cyberart" as found at Webmuseum Cybercolony. The Pygoya Webmuseum of Cyberart of this Web site (www.lastplace.com) documents his work in digital fine art since 1985. Prior to that time the artist worked in painting, sculpture, printmaking, ceramics, photography, mixed media assemblages including a national recognized disco-dental clinic art installation. In 1980 Pygoya received the Ph.D. degree in Art Psychology. Long ago before that, from 1963 to 1968 (during the same heyday of The Beatles), he was the leader of a popular Honolulu rock accordion(!) band.
