Pixel art mosaics

A work in line with Roman or Greek mosaics, works by Paul Signac or Georges Seurat and more recently by Roy Lichtenstein or Victor Vasarely. Ced VERNAY appears as a contemporary pointillist, an explorer of the pixel.
A disturbing element which very often symbolizes the poor quality of an image, Ced VERNAY has placed it at the heart of his artistic work for almost twenty years.

Ced VERNAY pixelated world

Entering his universe is also a real invitation to explore the right hemisphere of our brain and its holistic perception.
It is indeed from small fragments called today pixels that we apprehend the elements from a general point of view. According to the followers of the pointillist theory, when the painting is looked at from a certain distance, the colored points cannot be distinguished from each other but blend in optically with each other.
It is therefore from these myriads of pixels that we manage to represent the whole, to discover these portraits that have become clear again.
