Video Blog 1074 – The Incredible Digital Quilt


Created by Master Digitographer, Richard Marvin Voigt – aka RIVO

Richard Marvin Voigt (RIVO) is a Wisconsin born artist, author, editor, photographer, publisher, inventor and educator. His artistic creations were redirected from traditional forms of art as a child in 1947 to mostly digital art creations starting in 1987.  Fascinated by the powerful potential of his newly built computers, they afforded him unlimited flexibility in creating and designing compositions that soon began to satisfy his personal passion for digital art. As he became more adept in handling software functions, he began experimenting with complex pixel restoration, archiving thousands of family photographs, old slides and documents; bringing each back to their original quality.

Throughout his life, he has taken hundreds of thousands of photographs and created thousands of original works of art that lead to experimentations in creating his Digital Quilt. Each digital quilt composition is an abstract kaleidoscopic rendering of a person, place or object in the artist’s life. The reoccurring theme he set for his quilt, places an emphasis on line, color and texture that often create optical illusions that play with perceptions; some advance while others retreat in his spatial and colorful compositions. With over 1700 compositions in this incredible digital quilt collection, when placed end-to-end the entire canvas quilt spans the length of over seventeen (17) professional football fields.

He has always admired the intricacy of hand-sewn quilts, but wanted to create one on a grand scale using his unique approach. Just as each traditional quilt tells a story, so does each section of his quilt. Each 38” x 38” canvas quilt section can be place contiguously up a wall, continue across ceilings, around corners and even constructed into shapes that can hang from the ceiling or connect on the floor in the form of a three-dimensional maze. Many of these digital compositions capture the symmetrical wonders found growing in the prolific Wisconsin garden oasis his wife Lynn and he have created. Since they began sharing their garden on YouTube with over 1,000 video productions, their garden has now been seen by millions of avid gardeners from 132 countries.

This rare glimpse into one of RIVO’s thematic galleries is an intriguing insight into the creative mind of an artist who passionately explores non-traditional approaches in art while exploring new technology layered with a sense of eastern and western philosophy. If you appreciate and respect a creative mind, then this rare colorful collection will please and inspired your love for balance and metaphoric reflection.

Ever wonder how the mind of an artist really works?

There’s always the creativity factor within each and every artist’s mind of imagination. Since thought is pure energy, each of us pursues our own journey, passions and interest. For me, Art is a VERB, it’s the act of creation and to me much more than its Noun which can also bring pleasure and grace a patron’s loving home or their growing business.


Then there is the eye of the beholder who understands and appreciates what they see or simply dismisses what they fail to like or comprehend. And that’s OK. We’re different. But adding a variety of art to your life truly defines your inner spirit in enriching your life. Without art, all aspects of life would remain colorless, tasteless and ultimately, deadening.


Just like everyone enjoys different foods, clothes and lifestyles, why not Fine Art? The appreciation of different styles of art is influenced by a combination of individual, cultural, and societal factors. Here are some reasons why different people like different styles of art:

  1. Personal Taste and Preference: Each person has unique tastes and preferences. Art, like any other form of expression, resonates differently with individuals based on their personality, experiences, emotions, and interests. Some may prefer realistic art that captures familiar scenes, while others may be drawn to abstract or surreal pieces that evoke emotions and imagination.
  2. Cultural Background: Culture plays a significant role in shaping artistic preferences. Different cultures have diverse artistic traditions, aesthetics, and symbols that can influence how people perceive and appreciate art. For example, traditional Japanese art may appeal to someone from Japan due to their cultural upbringing and familiarity with its elements.
  3. Emotional Connection: Art has the power to evoke emotions, and different styles can elicit varying feelings. Some people may be drawn to art that stirs feelings of joy, nostalgia, sadness, or inspiration. The emotional response to art can be deeply personal and subjective.
  4. Art Education and Exposure: People exposed to various art forms through education or life experiences are more likely to develop an appreciation for diverse styles. Understanding the context, techniques, and historical significance of different art movements can enhance one’s understanding and liking for particular styles.
  5. Personality Traits: Individual personality traits can also influence artistic preferences. For example, someone who values order and structure may appreciate realistic or classical art, while someone with a more adventurous and open-minded nature may be drawn to experimental and contemporary styles.
  6. Social Influence: Art trends and popularity can be influenced by social factors such as media exposure, art critiques, and art market trends. Social circles and peer influences can also impact how individuals perceive and respond to certain styles of art.
  7. Cognitive Processing: How the brain processes visual information can affect artistic preferences. Some people may be drawn to intricate details and fine craftsmanship, while others may prefer simplicity and minimalism.
  8. Personal Experiences: Past experiences and memories can influence artistic preferences. Art that reminds someone of a special moment, place, or person may hold a special significance to them.
  9. Artistic Expression: Some individuals may have personal experiences in a particular art style, such as practicing it themselves or knowing an artist who works in that style, which can lead to a deeper appreciation for it.

Overall, the appreciation of art is a highly individualized and subjective experience, and the interplay of these factors makes it natural for people to have diverse tastes and interests in different styles of art.
