Arno Beck’s prints and conceptual paintings focus on the analog production of digital images. His motifs are based on low-resolution computer graphics, games, and interfaces and testify to a deep engagement with the language of digital culture. Transposed into classical artistic media, Beck’s works lend the ephemeral digital surfaces an aura and permanence that questions our use of computer-generated images. Yet the artist’s hand always remains visible, subverting machine perfection and making error an important conceptual factor. This first monograph by the artist documents the fascinating interplay between the contemporary screen world and traditional artistic techniques.
