Reni Gower

Artist Statement Submitted 2014

Pivot.(points) is an ongoing series of acrylic paintings on paper mounted on to canvas covered panels. I blend a fluid improvisational painting approach with a repetitively structured and analytical one to create complex images that counter visual skimming. I incorporate the circle as a multicultural decorative motif, as a metaphor for binary code, and as a universal symbol of continuity and perfection. Through intricate patterning, I combine these references to contrast passive technological consumption with the redemptive nuance of slow work made by hand. While addressing issues of beauty, my art becomes an intimate vehicle for reflection or reprieve.
