Texture Giving Way to Form

Have you ever been captivated by a piece of art that seems to come alive before your eyes? Installation art has the power to transform a space, engage the senses, and evoke deep emotions. Let's delve into the fascinating world of installation art and discover how texture, color, and multiples come together to create a truly immersive experience.

What is Installation Art?

Installation art is a genre of contemporary art that encompasses a wide range of mediums and techniques. Artists create environments or immersive experiences that invite the viewer to step inside and become a part of the artwork. These installations often incorporate a variety of elements, including sculpture, painting, sound, and technology.

It has been a theme in my life to constantly straddle two genres. It's not that I'm trying to rebel against choosing a side, it just happens that by choosing what I love, it almost becomes undefinable. The work I create borders the realm of installation art and mural art. Murals are flat and often created by painters. But what does one call it when the mural starts to morph right out of the wall? Basically, it's an installation. No matter how you choose to define what I create, I do so with tons and tons of hand formed elements that create form and texture.

The Power of Multiples

Using multiples in installation art can create a sense of rhythm, movement, and continuity. Repetition of shapes, colors, or objects can draw the viewer's eye across the space and create a cohesive visual experience. By strategically placing multiples throughout the installation, I can guide the viewer to enjoy the bright texture from afar and to move closer to see the details within the details.
