Christine Meuris: Permutations

August 21, 2020 - September 5, 2020

free
A roughly circular shape made up of thousands of tiny lines, vertical, horizontal, and diagonal, in varying shades of blue, making up a pattern of concentric circles with red dots at the edges of some of the circles. The colors and line work make the shape look like it's vibrating.

The watercolor paintings on tea-stained paper in “Permutations” are inspired by “bargello” needlepoint patterns; embroidery consisting of upright flat stitches laid in mathematical patterns. The work explores the line segment and the dot, and the joy, sorrow, exuberance, quiet and simple beauty it is possible to express with them. In the “Stress Fracture” series Meuris explores environmental anxiety by breaking up the tidy mandala, symbol of mental balance and wholeness, evoking images of cracking polar ice.
