Painting for the brain
Those who have read this book will never again look at a painting the way they did before.
‘A painting is like a programme for the viewing machine in our brain’, such is the main postulation from which Pieter Adriaans, painter and Professor of Information Technology at the University of Amsterdam, is developing a new vision on the art of painting.
Our brain constructs an image of reality, based on a limited amount of information supplied by our eyes. The painter uses this fact. Recent insights from neurobiology, information technology and mathematics can teach us a new way of viewing the world.
This is a book for all viewers, teachers, critics, amateurs and professionals interested in the art of painting.
