‘Degrees of Connection’ Cap Jacobs Encore Exhibition
Precise geometric paintings
Date: Aug 26 – Sep 22Space: Mezzanine
Abstract art has always had a great appeal for me. My artistic goal is to create visually-arresting paintings, drawing on the abstract, minimalist, conceptual and hard-edge painting movements.
“Degrees of Connection” continues my portfolio of work in which I explore the restricted use of straight lines, a single circle and colour.
My paintings generally do not represent any particular objects or messages. Each painting is a visual presentation that seemed aesthetically interesting, perhaps quizzical, but always embracing life. I hope the viewers find them equally so, and I encourage them to respond with their own unique perspectives and interpretations.
In order to maintain crisp lines, I paint primarily on MDF board. I construct the boards and prepare them for painting, which I enjoy as an important aspect of the creative process.
