Jaime Ruas uses the scanner like a painter uses a canvas, painting directly onto the surface of scanner´s glass.
The images that are obtained with this technique are of a quality of details far superior to photography, through the scan of liquids can be seen as the paintings are merged with one another, creating unique textures.
The materials that he uses to create his scannographys are very diverse, like acrylic paintings, oil paintings, gouaches, pens, colored wax, collages of paper, juices, food, textiles, etc.
He has been experiencing recently conducted scans of paper burned mixed with paint.
In the last three years, Ruas has obtained hundreds of images of a strange and disturbing beauty ... getting of the scan some creative possibilities for art.
As almost always happens with the use of any means, just get creative to get results with the scanner, apart from their more conventional utility. And the creative possibilities of obtaining such images are as extensive as various techniques that can join the very act of scanning.
One of the advantages of using the scanner is that it gives an almost microscopic reading of the object.
