Untitled No. 1
Untitled No. 1 is a speculative composition taken from a larger body of research currently in development. The object strives to explore the origins of complexity within architectural geometry and the coupling of objects with shared and opposing characteristics. The work draws inspiration from a wide range of influences and representational genres, such as the surrealist paintings of Polish artist Zdzislaw Beksiński, the evolutionary models of William Latham, the representation of the macabre in horror films, and even from the aesthetics of black metal music. Variation in the composition’s silhouette and texturing seeks to invite a multiplicity of readings relative to scale, materiality, and resolution.
