Conundrum

Conundrum | installation view of wall work | Wynic/Tuck Gallery, Toronto| gouache, graphic tape on wall | 2005 | photo credit: Peter MacCallum


Conundrum presented at the Wynick/Tuck Gallery, Toronto included a series of paintings on paper installed in the Wynick/Tuck South Gallery and a site specific wall painting installation set in the gallery’s Project Room. The paintings seemed like fictitious topographies, capturing the movement and speed I imagines of information playfully spinning and whizzing through cyberspace. The images are constructed by combining different perspective views and elevations within the picture plane. The flat, coloured swatches not only refer to the use of digital reproduction, but also allude to the history of modern colour field painting. Again two-dimensionality and three-dimensionality compete for space in the picture plane, while I also contends with the more abstract concept of the fourth dimension, informed largely by the work of Russian Suprematist Kasimir Malevich and of Theo van Doesburgh.
