Alex Spremberg // Liquid Geometrics
'In this exhibition, I continue to investigate the relationship between precise geometric systems and the unpredictable nature of paint.
Digital networks, grid systems and other Cartesian means of delineating bring order to our lives. However, this controlled environment is often undermined by unpredictable forces such as emotional undercurrents, unconscious impulses or irrational instincts.
By combining precise geometric structures with inexact painting processes, the nature of the materials and the manner in which they are applied are in stark contrast to the configurations they describe.
With this process I am questioning the confidence we place in the stability of structures that support our physical existence.
Originally the geometric configurations were based on observing commonplace stacks of cardboard boxes, which have been disassembled and abstracted. They have become dysfunctional and their remaining fragile framework is unable to contain anything but the void.'
