In 2002, Svetlana Baklavona introduced a new style of painting, using geometrical squares to form images and transform regular shapes in the dynamic fusion. The high-end art gallery in Charlotte, NC, representing Svetlana's work could not place her art style into any category. So, the owner has asked her museum contacts in US to review it and eventually Svetlana met with Dr. Mikhail German, Head of Research at the State Russian Museum, who after careful investigation has come up with the final conclusion.
Inspiration behind Pixelpointillism Art Movement
Pixelpointillism (pixel pointillism) is a stretched reflection of basic computer boundaries inside traditional art. It represents an uncommon blend of visual objects captured in the moment that can be uncovered by zooming in on the fluid particles of its existence.
Every object that we see is multi-granular, and suppresses in itself countless different elements that accentuate its existence. This gradation of elements can be imagined but cannot be seen; they can be uncovered by zooming into the moment. This would be a view of the computer from looking outside in to the human world if the computer had an essence of life. By zooming in on the structure, we are immersed in the unknown and distinctive world of elements. But, even these elements are representations of the vast cosmos of interrelated and dependent elements. I am, as one of the elements of human consciousness, introducing another probable version of our universe.
In 2004, Dr. Mikhail German, Head of Research at the State Russian Museum, sayed that Svetlana Baklanova has created a “new art movement of pixelpointillism.” (pixel pointillism)
