Anne Vieux

b. 1985, Michigan, USA

Lives and works in Brooklyn, New York

 

Anne Vieux is a painter, sculptor, and video artist exploring the effects of light, scale, and materiality on abstract painting. Her process involves scanning holographic paper then pushing the limits of the image data through extreme zooming, warping, and repetition. The manipulated images are then printed onto faux suede, and Vieux adds her final augmentation by hand using airbrushed acrylic paint and matte medium gel. The paintings exist as part of the great tradition of using tools wrong (here a digital scanner), and this marriage of virtual image, physical materiality, and painterly finesse ultimately seeks the tension between the physical and digital realms.
