In the art community and his works, Alfred Stoll is interested in
topics such as:
• The influence of digital approaches and techniques
on contemporary art and on the artist
• Determining the artistic value and importance
of digital art today
• Defining the artist's role in the creation
of digital art in the future
• Metamodernism in art
In his works, Alfred Stoll doesn’t use the digital environment as analog instruments, such as a brush and a canvas. The process of creation lies in a combination of techniques: Invert colors, double exposure, distortion, multiple overlay, stylization, motion, video collage, AR and MR, 3D modelling, as well as digital drawing and painting, which differs greatly to the usual artistic techniques, not having basic methodology of use and implementation, they require a different approach and often resemble an alchemical experiment. His digital laboratory fits into his smartphone and laptop, always with him, easy to use and doesn't require anything from him besides his interest in digital experimentation.
The main art direction Alfred Stoll creates in is metamodernism. The idea of new sincerity, tenderness, sensuality, artistic freedom and post irony doesn't only resonate with him but gives him inspiration. His artworks are a condensation of his personal experience and a compilation of the global stream of information reimagining of meta-narratives due to mental oscillation between two chosen polarities, as well as the search of his own and social boundaries.
