2015: Utopiate

First Suprematist Exhibition, St. Petersburg, 1915

First Suprematist Exhibition, St. Petersburg, 1915

This fifth offering is going all the way back to the forefathers of non-objectivity and their vision for a new geometric Utopia. A culmination of many things, this series will be about the simplicity of space and composition, both being ongoing concerns in the studio as the placement, scale, and location of the objects I make are equally as important as the surface, structure and materials used. The size and layout of a gallery or other space a work may be situated in helps to inform how works are installed or grouped and “read” as a whole, or otherwise engaged by the viewer. These drawings will continue the tradition of allowing for incidentals (drips, splashes, material imperfections, etc.), and continue to allow for a general casualness in the approach that maybe isn’t always evident in other bodies of work while exploring the location of the page.
