This Roundles Pallet generative art print is created by Alex Russell using a two-part system. Firstly, there is a computer programme (code). Secondly, there is a library of photos and scans of hand-made images. The code models a range of pattern-making and compositional rules. These are developed from methods used in a range of creative processes, including textile design, graphic design and fine art. When the code runs, it uses the rules to arrange the library images. Every new run creates a unique artwork.
The concept behind Roundles Pallet explores building complexity from simplicity. Using thousands of (simple) spots and stripes, the code layers up areas of pattern, creating an almost-three-dimensional space. A sophisticated colour algorithm models 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 Pallett (the name is a nod to heraldic terminology) works with a library that mixes hand-made and coded-created imagery.
