“Recent Works” September 6th, 5PM-9PM
BY MARK W. MCGINNIS
The work in this exhibit presents pieces from the three series I am currently producing. It is unusual for me to work on more than one series simultaneously in that most of my career has been spent with complete focus of attention on one project or series at a time.
The Untitled painting series was begun in 2016 when I decided I wanted to return to textural acrylic techniques I had used
extensively in the 80’s and 90’s. I began with some simple geometry and then turned to a study of the aesthetics of Euclidean geometry and have since let the geometry fuse with organic shapes to bring the series to where it is now. It currently includes 160 paintings.
The Untitled small sculpture series was begun in the Summer of 2018. It grew out of the enjoyment I had doing a piece for a Swell Art Collective show using re-purposed materials. I channeled that interest to this series of small sculpture that again reflects my interest in the geometric and organic. The unending challenges of working in three dimensions has been such a delight for me in this series.
The Small, Imperfect, Impermanent series takes a very different path from the two Untitled series. The style and media are similar to the book projects I did in the first 15 years of this millennium. It is my hope that these paintings will encourage people to look closely and enjoy the small beauties that we often pass by.
