Meatware Ecosystem

Meatware Ecosystem

In his new series of painting, Meatware Ecosystem, Robert Roest continues his exploration of painting in relation to digital media. For this series, Roest has selected stills from a range video games and computer programmes. Roest is interested in the properties of digital aesthetics, specifically sharpness, and the expression of substance (materiality) of a ‘thing’ that exists only in the digital realm. In each of the six works in the series, Roest combines two image fragments. In an anti-painterly gesture, Roest made a sharp divide, horizontally across the painting, disturbing the viewing of the paintings. Some image fragments are meaty, earthy and reveal a rawness that challenges the digital realm from which they were derived. Other fragments emphasise their immaterial origin, capturing radiance and smoothness.
