Where Oilpaintings blends & deals with digitalization

Thorben Eggers combines traditional oil painting with digital image processing by alienating photos with the help of artificial intelligence. In the process of image editing, he is interested in errors that dissolve the image or transform it into abstract forms. Simulated gestures or displaced pictorial objects are created from the digital template, which are painted with oil on specially made picture supports. In this respect, Eggers' work questions the position of the painted image in the digital age.
