Roundles Pallet (Prints)

Two of the most enduring pattern motifs are the spot and the stripe. The Roundles Pallet series explores how complexity can be created from these apparently-simple elements. The artworks’ colour is set by a specially developed algorithm that models the human perception of the spectrum, building rich, vibrant outputs from balanced points around the colour wheel.
The series has its roots in a series of work Alex made in the late 2000s when he began researching with possibilities of digital printing. Further developed as part of the Genuary 2022 generative art challenge, Roundles Pallet (the name is a nod to heraldic terminology) works with a library that mixes hand-made and coded-created imagery. Each run creates a unique, one-off artwork.

The code is written in Processing, running on a PC powered by electricity from 100% sustainable sources. All prints are archive quality, professionally giclée printed in the UK on acid-free, museum paper. Alex Russell hand-signs each one.
