Composition 2SUMMER SPOTLIGHT EXHIBITION
Composition 2: Recent work by Tom Burtonwood
To mark the release of artist publication Color Studies 2010-2011, Composition 2 is an exhibition of works culled from a series of 100 paintings produced sequentially, each one created on an identical matrix. The geometric composition is conceptually equivalent to the source code one might use in a computer program or web site. An identical visual framework is deployed to create many variations through simple modulations of hue and saturation. Through a process of repetition and experimentation the phenomena of color is revealed to the viewer with many different outcomes.
Color Studies 2010-2011 is a 120 page publication with essay by media artist Patrick Lichty It is funded with an individual Artist Support Initiative grant from the Illinois Arts Council.
