Often Software is a new media exhibition of recent works from New Haven-based artist Paul Theriault featuring artwork that is both digitally constructed and displayed on media devices in the form of laptops, desktop computers, and video monitors. Much of the exhibit will consist of a series, “Scanner Paintings”, in which oil paint is applied directly to a scanner bed. The underside of the glass is scanned and imported into a computer. After this scan, the painted scanner is itself scanned by an additional device mounted atop the original. Using digital imaging software, Theriault then merges these two files—the relief of the exposed paint and the flattened underside of the glass bed—to create his images. Paul Theriault has been exploring the possibilities of new media within the context of artistic production for the past two decades. He has exhibited in the United States and overseas.
