MFA ’15 Fine Arts 2D
My recent projects have explored abstraction and visualization. The offsets paintings take a simple motif, usually stripes, and slip the imagery out of its physical boundary, wrapping around the opposite side. A small copy of the original motif hovers, letting the viewer see both conditions simultaneously. The sprayed paint sometimes participates in the offset effect or imparts a perceptual, spatial aspect to the situation. The January series involved producing a piece a day for the month of January, 2021. Each piece holds a different figuration that explores the geometry of the common form. Taken as a whole, the field of pieces mutate and mesmerize like an animation. Individually, the pieces invoke different pictorial concepts, sometimes feeling descriptive, diagrammatic or spatial.
