Blouin ArtInfo Features Joan Waltemath: Fecund Algorithms

Fecund Algorithms,” an exhibition of works by artist Joan Waltemath (b.1953) started on April 5 and will run through May 13, 2017 at Anita Rogers Gallery, New York.

The selection of works on display features new paintings from the artist’s 'Torso/Roots' series. The new paintings by Waltemath were created with a range of unique materials including oil, graphite and various metallic and fluorescent pigments on aluminum panels, many of which took years for the artist to complete. 

The artworks deal with the complex and inextricable relationships between the human body and the mind, the physical and the spiritual and art, architecture and the natural world. Due to the reflective and absorbent nature of the pigments used in the paintings, new details can be observed when viewed from different perspectives at different times of the day, hence every interaction with one of the panels is a new experience.
