Graphic Fields

Graphic Fields is a series of drawings, renderings, models and a text researching compositional principles that stage interactions between flat shapes and volumetric systems.

Each experiment plays with a loose, but finite grammar of objects, architectural elements, and graphic fragments distributed in a (primarily) plan-based matrix. Ambiguous in scale and program, different iterations recall game-board layouts, athletic fields, and vacant stage sets.

The project embraces the semantically charged obstacle course-gardens or “complexes” developed by Post-Minimal sculptors like Alice Aycock, Nancy Holt, Mary Miss and Robert Morris as a formal type. Like the complexes of that era, the compositions that make up Graphic Fields are open-ended aggregations of overlapping visual systems; movements between structure and informality suggests growth and change.
