James Jarvis’s mission is to preserve the present through paintings that capture the everyday act of social networking.
ARCHIVING THE WORLD ONLINE
We are a society driven to preserve the present.
Since the first humans used cave walls to preserve their time, we too continue this societal need via social networks. Every shared article, every liked photograph, every selfie on the world wide web is an archive of our immediate present.
As our present becomes the immediate past
The constant need for fresh entertainment to archive, has created new problems. The emergence of Fake-News that has helped the extreme right of Trump and Brexit take over the national conscious with unsubstantiated "facts".
PIXELREALISM BY JAMES JARVIS
James Jarvis is the influential post Internet artist of Pixelrealism, a term he coined in 2016 for a specific mode of art making in the 21st Century:
A genre of art making that encompasses painting, drawing and other graphic media, in which an artist studies a (pixelated) image from the Internet and then attempts to reproduce the image as realistically as possible in another medium.
James Is used by art lovers, patrons, collectors, and educators to discover, learn about, and collect art.
POST INTERNET ART
Post-Internet art describes an existing movement in art as well as critiquing the effect of the Web on art and society.
Taking signs from the understanding of Postmodernism as a response to or being rejected of Innovation, post-Internet does not suggest a time "after" the Web however instead a time "around" the Web.
While Net Art of the late 1990s utilized the Web largely as a tool, post-Internet techniques make use of both on the internet and also offline layouts to involve with electronic society, business society, and also the impacts of common networking.
