Details

Colangelo’s series of new printed paintings are composed of ink on canvas that are generated from hand drawings and digital media exploring the infinite possibilities of abstraction. Inspired by geometric and biomorphic abstraction, the work experiments with the endless and unique combinations that result from a personal reflexive process and computational system. Remixing, sampling and riffing off of iconic modern and contemporary paintings, the fusion of images is manipulated to create a fantastical illusionistic space by morphing, stretching and distorting geometric planes, colors and shapes. Expanding on Colangelo’s daily practice, the result is a generative series of colorful works where meaning is adaptable to shifting cultural and social conditions, in an age of networks and algorithms where everything is fluid.

Carmon Colangelo is a pioneering printmaker whose work combines surrealism and abstraction with the exploration of art history, science, and technology.
