ZERO + ONE
DIGITAL ART BY JEFFREY GLASSOVER
The pieces featured in this exhibition, reflect Jeffrey H. Glassover’s contemporaneous exploration of, and experimentation with, the realm of digital art. Each work is created entirely on a computer and personifies a bold attempt to synthesize the seemingly disparate worlds of human consciousness and digital technology.
According to the artist—who is also a composer, poet, entrepreneur, and practicing attorney—”As a species, we stand on the cusp of a profound new era, which promises to usher in a transformation of human consciousness. From this perspective, the computer represents a powerful tool for navigating the apparent chasm looming between human cognition and artificial intelligence… Like all original art, each of these paintings is initially created in the veiled recesses of the unconscious mind. The world’s ancient mystical traditions have various names for this hidden universe of verdant energy, from which emerges all human creativity. The constant challenge for every serious artist is to tap into and nurture this powerful creative energy, while simultaneously having the awareness and discipline to avoid the interruption of its flow by interjecting the obstacle personified by the self-conscious ego.”
Glassover’s colorful abstract compositions are beautiful examples of a practice that has evolved in the last few decades under the term of new media art. Art Ovation Hotel is pleased to introduce the public to a selection of works produced using digital technology as an essential part of their creative and presentation process.
