Notes

Abstract: Fragmentation and tension in abstraction became important attributes of abstract art early in the Modern period. Since then they have sustained their prevalence and importance, despite major changes in artistic theory. The dynamic tension experienced in the linear abstraction of my paintings is based on a system of individual straight lines, which collectively interact in randomly defined formations. Sol LeWitt first explored the role of random decision making in the composition of a work, and John Cage later worked with this idea more in depth. While randomness is explored in the linear abstract forms, illusionism is incorporated into other aspects of the work. The tension between linear randomness and illusionistic representation attempts to align ideas of randomness expressed non-objectively to notions of real interaction. A system of rolling dice has associations to the will of the individual, and both individual will and chance are used in the determination of abstract compositional decisions.
