About The Work

Over the past decade Ara Peterson’s sculptures have used familiar materials, paint and wood, to counterintuitive ends. In Untitled, Peterson has drafted patterns based on imagined forms and the kinetic attributes of wave formation. Realized with layers of painted wood, the optically mystifying work prompts viewers to reconcile the stasis of rigid materials with the dynamism of undulating visual bands. While the patterns suggest motion and malleability, the unique incongruities of hand-painted, organic materials reveal the significant labor underpinning the illusion of the surface.
