Jpegs 2006

In 2000 Ruff was downloading images from the internet when he realized some of them were broken up into little squares. It created a “painterly, impressionistic structure, and rendered parts of what was often an ugly image very beautiful. I looked into it, and found the Jpeg file-compression software was responsible.” As he began attempting to create such images by himself his now famous print series Jpegs was born. The images featured here focus on traditional landscapes and ruins, and expose the inherently negative impact of mankind on the environment—the redundant train tracks interrupted and ignored by the silver birch trees. From far away the works can appear whole, solid, occasionally even picturesque, but on closer inspection the more pixelated, sinister and chaotic they become.
