CHESS CONSTRUCTIONS

Andrew Cole Explains His Art

The images I share with you here are as much for you, the viewer, as for my own indulgence. Sequential perfect information zero-sum combinatorial games such as chess or the popular Asian game Go create forces and objects using energy and matter in a process that mimics real world physics.

Advancing beyond the level of the average chess player takes years of study and practice; my interest in chess is simply the enjoyment of cerebral competition. In the process of playing a game, why not also enjoy the game as an artistic challenge, to articulate the forces and structures created in each individual match in a way that draws in the viewer and creates an esthetically pleasing image?

I look at these two dimensional human constructions as a toolbox to create structures and particle interactions that may or may not duplicate reality, but their integrity within the rules is maintained just as in real life. I have had the opportunity to attack uncharted territory using the tools provided by one discipline to create my own version of another. I hope eventually someone else will use one of these toolboxes to create their own vision so that I can enjoy and learn from their efforts.

Thank you for viewing my work. I welcome any comments or criticisms; you can reach me at:

GRANDMASTER ART

Lisle Drake's Alchemy Art

Lisle Drake resides in the Hill Country of Texas. She writes, "Alchemy is the art of transformation of base elements into precious new forms, and each of my works represents one aspect or another of that magical art... I've been an artist all my adult life, working in a wide range of media from pen and ink on paper to batik and other techniques on fabric. I've been using the computer as both a tool and medium since my first 128K Mac Classic in 1985. I get most of my ideas through dreams, and my dreams tend to run in series, sometimes over many years. Each time a dream occurs I find something new in the dream and I spend lots of time capturing these memories either on paper or working directly in the machine. These memories, which fill hundreds of sketch books and computer files, are the raw material from which my finished works are made.

"I work principally with Photoshop, Painter and Illustrator, and my input devices are a high resolution scanner and a Wacom tablet. As I begin work on a new piece I make decisions about which elements are already in my archives and which will have to be created new. If new elements have to be created I might sketch the piece on paper and scan it in, or I might begin working in a Painter or Illustrator file using my Wacom tablet, or I might grab an old digital file and begin manipulating the element directly in Photoshop."

This is an art both wondrous and gloriously playful.
