This month, Well Well Projects features new work by Jeremy Le Grand.
These works blend together my interest in color, rhythm, dense patterning, and the strangeness of the human body. I love a line that becomes a shadow that becomes a form that then merges and morphs into a pattern, receding and repeating and breaking the surface only to slowly sink back in on itself. And the body: I’m always surprised (and confused, repelled, allured) by it, by it’s goofy extremities and playful curves, it’s charming softness and surreal symmetry. The body here is fragmented and rendered as a playfully reduced form, something almost cartoonish, the clean lines and simplified forms reminiscent of a character from some forgotten Saturday morning cartoon. These parts and pieces are familiar but made strange.
