Description:
Abstract painting that looks like the paint is woven in a digital pattern with lots of little squares. Top and bottom of the painting have darker shades of purple, green and black with hints of bright blue. Near the center of the painting is a lighter band of color with more bright blue, orange and pinks and a few hints of white.
Historical Context:
Regarding his work, Chicago-based artist James Denoyer states, “’Spectrum’ is my newest body of abstract work that explores the intersections of woven paper. Each line is a story, both revealing and hiding information at the same time. All the work was made during the pandemic of 2020, so I look at them as literal “screenshots” of my psyche on a path to healing during this time. A representation of the fleeting moments, similar to when you get stuck changing channels, or when your reception would falter on an old television.“
