Dourone has done it! They’ve painted the Internet!
You didn’t think it could be done; depicting this far-flung mass of hot-n-bothered pixels teaming with the past, the present, and the Google across two screens. However, the duo has painted the platform that informs and clouds your understanding simultaneously at the École de Communication (EFAP) and the BRASSART school of design in Aix-en-Provence, France.
The duo keeps it all within their range of the color palette, an appealing, disconcerting combination of hues lit from behind, combined as if through a software filter to be just two shades beyond real. “They were both made with our color range which consists of 41 different shades of acrylic and brush paint,” they tell us of these new paintings upon the two schools.
Somewhere in here is the DNA of this painting pair, an involuntary echo that reveals their true figurative nature, but passed within a screen of thousands of emoting, reflecting, archiving, gesticulating, glitched verbiage. The walls are in concert, yet not related. Painstakingly painted without automatic lifts, the creatively, kinetically connected artists tell us returned to the age-old tradition of scaffolding.
“This mural in two parts evokes the current state of communication,” they say, “or how we are constantly connected to each other and sometimes so alone.”
