The exhibition is comprised of mixed media paintings and free-standing sculptures. This new body of work is a departure from the artist’s minimal and controlled palette of colors to the opposite side of the spectrum with bright glowing tonalities of the spray paint.
“In the past ten years I had reduced my color palette to a few colors and relied mostly on their tonality to do my work. I had also been working on sculptures of radical geometric form and usually finished them with one color or two at the most. In this project I wanted to break away from this past as well as introduce some new applications of paint into the mix. The idea is to allow the geometric element to weave itself in and out from the paintings to the sculptures and back in a seamless dialog.
