dARTworks

An Art Gallery for artworks (in various media) produced in response to Dartmoor and the Dartefacts Project

Landscape as a subject for art is on the very threshold of absence and presence. Dartmoor, a seemingly ’empty’ moorland, is in fact haunted at almost every step by the past.

Pixel Art: “Darticons” for Dartefact Classifications.. ..and my ‘Twin Peaks’ obsession!

      

Small, 50 x 50 Pixel Graphics drawn/painted on an iPad Pro using an Apple Pencil and the Pixaki and Dottable Pixel Art Editor Apps. I am also now using Photoshop. These little images are used on Dartefacts as a visual icon for classifications – I call them ‘Darticons’. The ones displayed here are all Twin Peaks related.. ‘Evil Cooper’, ‘Dr. Jacoby’, ‘Special Agent Dale Cooper’, ‘The Red Room’, ‘Damn fine coffee, and hot!’, ‘The Log’ and the ‘Twin Peaks Logo’.
