Impressionist painters such as Monet and Renoir drew attention to the brushwork employed in the construction of their paintings. Individually placed strokes, painterly equivalents to perceptions of light, created patchworks of colour that optically mixed in the eyes of the viewer. Seurat took this process to extreme lengths with his Pointillist style, exploring the visual effects of colour relationships in ways that were both subtle and dramatic. Bridget Riley has meticulously studied and employed such effects throughout her career but with very different results from those of Seurat. In Dan Hays’ contemporary landscape paintings like Colorado Impression 11B, brushstrokes operate like pixels, capturing beautiful painterly equivalents to digital noise and low resolution photographs.
