Yellow and Black, 2023

This picture, Yellow and Black (2023), was made using AI. It’s heavily inspired by artist Sam Francis’s Green and Red (1966), pictured below. While the colors don’t match up exactly, if you look closely the shapes of the paint do.

I find when generating AI art, using a starter image helps me express the feelings I experience when I look at a piece of art. As humans enter the digital age, in terms of art we’re entering the age of re-mixing. The barrier to entry has never been lower when it comes to creation, and it’s our duty as explorers on the forefront to find where the edges are of the technology.

Thank you, Sam, for your amazing work. I hope the future will keep the memory of you alive.

Green and Red, 1966. By Sam Francis.
