Christian Seidler is best known for his fine portraiture work. He is also the founder of Matricism, a new language for expression in art. Until recently the Matricism carried a heavy burden. Its intricacies placed a high physical, mental, and emotional demand on the artist. In the first 13 years of the existence of the technique Seidler produced only 3 or 4 paintings per year. For example, one painting "The Quest for Innovation", took over three months of debilitating physical labor to complete. The compensating feature of the technique is that it is algorithmic. In other words, the technique is based on a structured approach that makes it amenable to realization through the use of recently developed technology. The technology used to produce Matrix paintings includes digital imaging, image processing, lots of programming, and a 21st Century paint brush. I believe that real art is created by the heart and mind. The question of the importance of Craftsmanship in art is an interesting one, especially with regard to technical innovations. If one believes that craftsmanship is not important, then why bother about what the artist uses as a tool? If you believe that craftsmanship is important, then why deny the artist a superior paint brush? For more information, please visit: http://www.matricism.com
