Charlotte Davies
«Artist's statement»

«The software as a tool provides a hugely expanded visual language, allowing me to create within a three-dimensional world, on the other side of the picture plane, using an infinite combination of properties of light and surface, within the entire range of photo-realism and abstraction. It is a powerful and exquisite tool, encompassing aspects of painting, sculpture, photography and film with entirely new syntactic elements: the creative possibilities it offers are endless. Inherent in this technology however, are certain value-laden conventions such as Cartesian space, linear perspective, and ‚objective’ realism, intrinsic to the computer as a product of western scientific tradition. For me the challenge is to go beyond these conventions, using the technology to create ambiguous visions of subjective realities.«
