Time Regret And Math
Exhibit by Katie Merz
About the artist:
As a kid growing up in Brooklyn, I have always been interested in connecting art to the built and external environment of the street. I currently work in a very simple white on black style that translates quickly into an easily read, pictographic language that looks like a classroom blackboard or the work of a kid on an asphalt street. This language creates a convergence between graffiti, coding and the mathematical deduction of everyday language. What I do now is not so different from what I did as a kid – playing outside, messing with language and drawing. Over the past year my work has come onto the streets not far from where it began. I am now working almost entirely on found and commissioned projects that inhabit a specific architecture. Lines and respect for the changing integrity of line is what the practice is.
