My engagement with the technical conditions of creating images— digital as much as traditional print- and paint-based — has greatly influenced my conceptual understanding of the painterly process in historical and contemporary practices, and has “left marks” on the evolution of my own artistic activities. Stimulated by the experience and by the exchange between informatics and the robotic world, I found myself to some degree compelled to challenge and reconceptualise the foundations of my painterly practice, starting with the bodily movement of the single brushstroke all the way to questions concerning control and loss of control in the creative process.
