Kyle Jorgensen's: Parastroke

Presented by Utah Museum of Contemporary Art at Utah Museum of Contemporary Art

The Utah Museum of Contemporary Art (UMOCA) is pleased to present Kyle Jorgensen’s Parastroke, the latest A-I-R Space exhibition.

The artist-in-residence’s exhibition is an exploration into the effects that the Windows interface and creative programs-like Adobe Photoshop-have had on a generation of artists who grew up using computers for more of their daily tasks, and how those effects are manifested in their artwork.

Introduced in the 1980s, the Windows interface (WIMP: window, icon, menu, pointer) allowed users to quickly navigate between programs and introduced the idea of layers and visual depth to their desktop computer screens. Later that decade, Photoshop integrated traditional analog art techniques and tools, which enabled artists to digitally “paint” with pixels rather than pigment. With the inclusion of virtual layers, artists could now “build up” a painting the way they would on a canvas.
