Robert Venosa has recently entered the realm of computer art and is attempting to morph from the traditional world of oil painting into the pixel-pecked world of cyber art. No mean feat for a purist: "I find it difficult to adjust to the fact that even the circle is made up of the square (pixel)", says Venosa. "Also, more consideration must be given to the quality and size of the end-product before I consign any portion of my soul to this electron entity. However, the potential, and challenge, is something no artist can deny nor avoid".
One of Venosa's first projects is a collaboration with the rock-music photographer, John Bellissimo, integrating and graphically enhancing their respective imagery in a series of limited edition prints and, ultimately, a book entitled Collaboration. A few of their initial efforts are shown here.
