Blow de la Barra is very pleased to present Miltos Manetas' Internet Paintings. Manetas began working on the Internet Paintings in 2002. They combine two large canvases 'one dark (as in Off) and the other bright (as in On), that represent painted collages of pages he finds in the Internet. As these sites are always appearing, changing and disappearing the surface of the paintings also evolves. They are infinite paintings; Manetas updates them regularly by adding any new websites he considers worthy of representation. A sentimental landscape of technology, an ever-changing biography of the internet and himself, the computer screen becomes a window for new and unexplored worlds: many of the websites represented in the paintings are there because they have changed the way we use the Internet, others are Internet artworks created by Manetas or his friends who use this medium as their studio and their place to exhibit their works. But most important, for Manetas these paintings have become a place to reflect on and recall different moments of his life.
