Modeled Abstractions | Erik White
September 11 – October 2, 2014 | Littman Gallery
Reception: Friday, September 26, 2014 | 6–9pm
I wanted a body of work that came out of my own conception. Instead of using found imagery that I didn’t have a role with from the beginning, I invented a process to make images from a malleable material that could be recycled to make new images. This series became a labor-intensive, meditative routine with limiting parameters. It was then possible to modify the variables to create new representations.
