“PIXELISM” explores and emphasizes
the idea that art meets science
in an act of connecting the dots into the digital age
and the current Contemporary arena
in terms of the imprint or fingerprint of pixels in the technological sense. 

"PIXELISM" is a distinct creative process and visual expression in painting, developed by Shelley Batcules. The name or term “PIXELISM” describes the visual attributes of the painted surface in the contemporary sense, referencing the idea we now live in a digital World where pixels form pictures.  The formal application of “PIXELISM” ranges from thick square shapes stokes of pure paint and thick square strokes holding various mixed media elements.  The optical effect of “PIXELISM” derives from the historical tradition of Pointalism. Pointillism is a technique of painting in which small, distinct dots of color are applied in patterns to form an image. Georges Seurat and Paul Signac developed the technique in 1886, branching from Impressionism. The term "Pointillism" was coined by art critics in the late 1880s.
