Artists throughout time have adapted content, style and tactics in order to represent changing perception, ambition and experience. André Hemer combines new technologies with old to push painting beyond its usual limits. His digitally- and hand-worked canvases are exploratory and open-ended. He says of them:I like to think that put alongside one another in a museum of the future, these works will reveal themselves more than they do now – because they will be removed from the nowness that seems as persuasive as ever. For this reason perhaps, I am always wary of work that proposes strongly to know itself in the moment. … I paint to record, to investigate. I am proposing New Representation, but I do so while admitting that we may not know exactly what to make of what it is that we are experiencing.
