Spur | 2021

Artist: Shelley Loheed
Medium: Mixed Media
Dimensions: 11 x 17 inches.

This painting investigates geometric designs derived from traditional patterns, especially the underlying grid, which is often hidden in traditional art as it’s considered part of the underlying structure of reality, the substrate of the cosmos. Here, the grid becomes a center from which the image emerges, at once revealed and obscured by fluid gestural improvisations combining two modes of working, the precision of drawing the grid’s underlying order and the chance interplay of wet media and spontaneous layers of washes, splashes, and strong brushwork. ‘Spur’ captures an image in a fraction of a second, a moment of revelation that speaks to going beyond the formless into form, into a more direct, loving relationship with Infinity.
