AI and Technology Influence on Contemporary Painting
Henry Hudson 2024

In “AI and Technology Influence on Contemporary Painting,” artists Jonathan Yeo, Von Wolfe, and Henry Hudson have embraced AI to redefine the essence of a new series of paintings, seamlessly integrating artificial intelligence and cutting-edge technologies into this new series. Through these new ground-breaking works, they explore and masterly navigate the complex relationship between humanity and machines, prompting a re-evaluation of art’s future, probing the boundaries of AI’s capacity to expand or limit artistic expression, extending to questions of identity, reality, and the evolving landscape of creativity in the digital age.

Jonathan Yeo‘s exploration of the power dynamics between humanity and technology evokes a strategic chess game, where the outcome remains uncertain. Known for his radical approach to portraiture, Yeo presents a captivating series that transcends conventional identity. By employing 3D scanning technology and algorithms to reimagine self-portraiture, Yeo’s canvases blur the boundaries between the tangible and the virtual, inviting viewers to question the authenticity of representation in our technologically driven world. 

Like a meticulous gardener, Von Wolfe manipulates AI to cultivate a landscape of visual narratives, skilfully arranging and crafting his protagonists within it. Von Wolfe process embodies the seamless interplay between the artist’s practice as an oil painter and the forefront of technological innovation. Striking a balance between intuitive human discernment and a cutting-edge node-based system using diffusion models, the resulting works showcase astounding precision. Von Wolfe navigates the boundary between digital and tactile realm.
