Analogue, abstract and grotesque artist Jana Stýblová shares her vision

“Each piece I create embodies the goal of merging the analogue/physical and digital. I begin a new piece by first making a painting on canvas with acrylic paint, spray paint and occasionally other chemicals. While the paint is still wet and malleable, I photograph the canvas both regularly and at a macro scale, revealing some of the more alien details the paint may create by interacting with itself. Once I have a set of sometimes hundreds of photos, I select the ones that strike me as most otherworldly or ones that would work well as a landscape foundation.”

”I bring these photographs into Photoshop and begin building, layering, cutting and seaming—slowly playing with density to reveal something that doesn’t look paint-like at all. Often I will add gradients at this stage before running this preliminary collage through a pixel sorting bit of code in Processing. Pixel sorting is a technique invented by Kim Asendorf in 2010—I like to work with analogue methods, but have a deep respect and awe of code, combining the two in the NFT / Digital Art space is what, to me, solidifies the art as a digital work, rather than physical. “

”This process repeats and can go on for many hours until I feel a sense of completion, or indeed, perhaps a bit of transportation. You can read a bit more here: https://janastyblova.com/a-nebula
