What started out as purely a project for the sake of art became a fun challenge, both mathematically, as well as in color theory. I came across this purely by accident, having zoomed in on a screenshot I took to try to find some particular detail, I noticed the multitude of colors in the sub pixels of “black.”

This is an exercise in scale, and misrepresentation. The act of physically painting, a human movement, imperfect, imprecise, manual, but representing the digital, the perfect. I wanted to call attention to the computer’s (current) inability to duplicate human error, as well as study the colors light takes to create black.
