    About The Work

    Cartwright's paintings touch on different subjects of Modernism, especially the systematic painting generation and those that laid the groundwork for methodical organization, pattern and uninflected surfaces. His scale is modest, which operates outside of American post-war painting scale and more attuned to the flat image generation of graphic painters that dominates today.

    Many of Cartwright's influences are also musical, specifically from jazz. The title: Tone Parallel is derived from Duke Ellington's composition A Tone Parallel to Harlem from 1951. Ellington's piece of music is in the tradition of a musical tone poem and by channeling teh spirit and vitality of Harlem using an utterly sophisticated formal vocabulary, Ellington offered a shining example of just how joyous reductive art can be.
