Trained in animation and computer graphics, Steinkamps art exists only in code, her computer serving as the paint, the palette and the brush. The book includes essays tracing Steinkamps career and providing an introduction to her unique methods. Other topics discussed in the book are Steinkamps work in the context of the burgeoning field of animation and her work in relation to the paintings of Monet and Pollock, showing how her work takes impressionist and expressionist art to the next, inevitable, step.JoAnne Northrup is a Senior Curator of the San Jose Museum of Art.Dave Hickey is an award-winning art critic.Dan Cameron is a curator at the New Museum of Contemporary Art in New York.
