Peter Terrin: A Million Little Pieces

We all did that thing as kids where we sat too close to the TV and it drove mom mad. No, we didn’t go blind as she over-exaggeratingly suggested, but what we did discover millions of tiny colorful dots on the screen. Those dots are called pixels, and they work together as micro spots of color to create the broad image that we perceive as our TV show, our movies and our pictures. Your laptop, your smartphone - anything with a display screen most likely uses pixels to build an image. And not just screens. Pick up a newspaper and look very closely—pixels. Belgian artist Peter Terrin uses a similar technique to create his breath-taking paintings, and the result is remarkable.
