Part of The Living is Easy: a series of projects by Struts & Faucet members
The research for these paintings focuses itself somewhere between pictorial and three-dimensional concerns; between the literal and the illusory. This series of geometrical shaped paintings play on the idea of perceptual illusionism and the illustration of volume. My interest for shaped canvas is in its ability to stand out; to engage the viewer to see the paintings as an object instead of a flat surface. My project presents multiple shaped canvases, which are regrouped into a hexagon-like form. Each surface is individually built. They can be shifted, re-arranged or left absent in new structures and compositions.
