Curated Artist Registry

The White Columns Curated Artist Registry is an online catalog of digital images documenting the work of artists who are not affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City. Each submission is reviewed by our curatorial staff; in order to be considered for the registry, one must submit work digitally via this website.

ALL ARTISTS ALPHABETICALLY: a → d e → h i → l m → p q → t u → x y → z

STATEMENT OF WORK

I use sequences from the numbers pi and e, prime numbers, grids, and repetition of simple geometric shapes as tools in devising systems for visualizing numerical values in creating three-dimensional, wall-based, geometric abstractions.

Majority of my past works are wall-based, geometric, crocheted fiberglass constructions in which Pascal’s Triangle and/or value of digits from specific sequences define spatial relationships and color distribution. Recently, I began exploring new systems of mapping sequences, anchored in drawing with various media on panel and variety of papers. These 2D works range from simple notations as graph plots to complex layered patterns that visualize hundreds of digits.   This exploration led to a new body of work in laser-cut acrylic-sheet with template-like cut outs, with some stacking, and use of shallow (up to 1.5”) nylon spacers. Here, panel placement and simple geometric shapes plot numerical values.
