Through the 1940s and 50s, Vera Molnar worked as post-constructivist, but as her interests became more and more computer oriented, Molnar ditched the canvas for a computer.
In 1967 she cofounded the group “Art et Informatique”, which explored the conjunctions between art and computing. The next year, having learned FORTRAN and BASIC, Molnar began creating computer-generated art and never looked back.
Liberated from the canvas, Molnar quickly abandoned the grids she had painted in favor of vibratory, nearly hypnotic pieces like “Tablotin 327 7" (above). In 2015 she was the subject of a retrospective Regarding the Infinite
, at New York’s Senior and Shopmaker Gallery.
