Comparing and contrasting... I’m excited to have a new project in the pipeline for this spring. A series of fractal responses to paintings within the collection of @strangershallmuseum will be installed in situ alongside their doppelgängers.
These fractured images are informed by the idea that paintings often have a natural geometry within them and energy points. The patterns used for these new paintings are based upon the geometry I see suggested in the originals.
These lattices reference both postmodern pixilation within painting, as influenced by digital culture, and the longstanding idea of an underlying order within both visual art and our wider perception of reality. They are also informed by the obsessive exploration of geometric patterns by the outsider painter Eugene Andolsek and the automated techniques of Sol Lewitt, who would pass instructions onto assistants who then created his drawings. Myself and a talented team are busy working on these, ready for display in April.
