Xbox 360 Art

Canadian artist Pavel Dolgov recently painted a few Xbox 360-themed pieces. The descriptions that go along with the paintings seem to point to Dogov's loose grasp of gaming culture. It seems like gaming is something he senses is important and relavent, but that he really doesn't understand. Here's his explanation of the attached painting, The Colony. My ant is artificial, made by humans, produced rather than natural and futuristic. This painting is about today's technology and how far it has gone. The object in the center is a modified Logo of an Xbox 360 gaming system and the object on the left is an ant a part of the whole colony. The influence of the gaming industry on today's world is a very controversial subject. For some it's the source of creativity and personal development, for others it's an addiction which can ruin lives. The ant in the painting represents those who are worshiping the gaming industry (in the form of 3 dimensional sphere) by dedicating their priceless time to their addiction. I have painted it in surrealistic style to show how real the problem is. I'm not sure I "get" this painting, but I might get it for my lounge, if I could convince my wife, it's kinda cool.
