Hard Graphics is an online exhibition of new paintings by SIMON DEGROOT exploring tensions between drawing, painting, and computer techniques. These works capture a process of translation as hand drawn sketchbook shapes are made into vector files before returning to the hand made in contemporary painting. This process is emblematic of a larger and more accelerated contemporary relation with visual culture and the way artists triage visual information – the way they identify, select, and translate ephemeral visual elements and turn them into painted motifs.
