Extraction Series: Rotated: Black
|Rotated: Black: Edition of 5||$200.00||Sold Out|
Matthew Shlian's Extraction Series is both a continuation and an evolution of his first two collaborations with Ghostly. Shlian's Process Series, created in early 2011, explored the notion of basic structures laying the foundation for increasing complexity while the Tessellation Series, which followed that summer, served as an expression of intuitive design evolving from a fixed starting point. In both works, the idea of movement is inherent, though addressed in opposite ways: the movement of the former being quite restrained and the latter much more energetic.
With the Extraction Series, the process of moving through space is once again Shlian's starting point. Set within the constraints of a square foundation, the compositions feature the same movements as in the Process Series--an array, a rotation, and an extrusion. But unlike the subdued movement of the Process Series or the bursting energy of the Tessellation Series, these new works exude an uncanny tension, as if the forms were trying to escape the page and the boundaries of the square.
