Though made with technological means, Spencer Keller’s works have a painterly look. This past March the artist moved from photo manipulation to glitch art. As he describes the change in medium,
“Something that immediately stuck out for me was the unpredictability of the processes. Deriving a lot of inspiration from other abstract and surreal art, there was a really profound sense of awakening when I finally started to experiment with glitch. Not long after I started experimenting did I develop a fondness for glitching pixel art. The vast majority of my work begins as a very small, simple, non-representational pixel drawing (usually 9x9 pixels). Using Audacity as a standby for databending (along with an extensive arsenal of free effects plugins) you can quickly turn that simple drawing into something really quite remarkable.”
