“My nights during curfew were, like for many of us, long, very long. So, I got an attestation to go out and photograph Montreal deserted. Walking the streets, watching the silent workers and the lonely homeless with no one to pass them a coin or two. Even the police seemed unoccupied. In this slowness, a delivery person passed furtively, another parked, another was awaiting an order, then another, and still others. All of them with a cell phone in their hand.” – Emmanuelle Léonard.

In Database Paintings, each image is created by aggregating pixels from freely available images of artworks, sourced from the permanent collections of The Tate, Guggenheim, and Reina Sofia Museums. Using custom software and machine learning techniques, groupings of pixels are “mosaicked” and collaged from the original artworks onto a novel virtual canvas, creating images that articulate a space between recognizability and emergence.
