Artists: H - Z: Jacob Lunderby
The recent work presents images of broken windows and bubble wrap that are layered over linear optical patterns and transferred into new compositions on wood panel; while the production of the work involves the use of digital resources and the printer, my objective is that the work be read in the context of painting. The marginal materials and sense of precarious formalism found in this meshwork of image and pattern provides a generative model for me to engage layers of attention, materiality and durations of time, from the context of a restaged image to the life span of a painting. Through the process of using optical patterns in conjunction with images that gesture towards methods of concealment, containment and protection, I use painting to activate the following ideas: to engage the potential to contain, disrupt and direct attention, and to address the image/painting object in its complex relationship to time and context.
