Swiss artist Andy Denzler makes oil paintings inspired by the glitchy paused frames of VHS tapes. From Wired UK:
"I'm pushing the boundaries and possibilities of abstract and photorealism. It's as if I've pressed the fast-forward on a video machine, then hit the pause button, so reality comes to a stand-still. I speed up and slow down the colours. What remains is a distorted moment -- classically painted, oil on canvas -- which, upon closer inspection is very abstract, but from distance looks real."Andy Denzler
