If you still have
doubts as to whether computer-generated art can actually be true art,
look in on McCrystle Wood’s Jardin Femme at
Clay Street Press. The 21 computer-created archival digital prints,
each in an edition of five, capture both the eye and the mind of the

without being didactic.
a painter/printmaker who is also a faculty member at DAAP’s School of
Design, has been investigating where considerations of the female
experience might take her for some time.
Earlier works in her Jardin
Woman”) series took on concepts of beauty and aging. Now, her artist’s
statement says, she’s thinking about “the future of the individual, the
society and the planet and notions of sustainability.”
At the Clay Street Press through May 15. Get gallery details and read Jane Durrell's review here.
