Finger Painting by Joseph Pentheroudakis

The contest between harmony and invention* The digital drawings in this exhibition represent my take on the tension between order and disorder, between predictability and spontaneity – or, as Antonio Vivaldi put it nearly four centuries ago, between harmony and invention. Drawing with digital media has allowed me to experiment freely and extensively with that tension, using a vocabulary of lines and shapes, color and value, and an array of different marks.

Each drawing begins life with near-infinite possibilities, which are then slowly winnowed down by the emerging image. The place where the two directions meet is always a source of wonder for me. *”Il cimento dell’armonia e dell’inventione”, title of a suite of concertos by Antonio Vivaldi, 1725
