Composition #39

Tony Conrad
Appleton

Acrylic on Canvas
NFS

In these works, the repetitive mark making and layers of information form a palimpsest of lines and patterns. The obsessive nature of redrawing similar marks over and over again is therapeutic as it oscillates between order and disorder. Guided by my intuition to relinquish control over chance, the grid-based paintings describe a journey – not a destination.

The paintings are built up through a rhythmic process where repetitive marks are deeply layered upon various geometric grids and patterns.
