Come hear Tom Burtonwood discuss his current solo exhibition at Hinge Gallery Sunday, August 7th at 4pm.
Tom Burtonwood’s exhibition Permutations examines color and shape through a formalistic approach to paper compositions and three-dimensional wall reliefs. “The geometric composition is conceptually equivalent to the source code one might use in a computer program or web site. An identical visual framework is deployed to create many variations through simple modulations of hue and saturation. Through a process of repetition and experimentation the phenomena of color is revealed to the viewer with many different outcomes.”
Burtonwood was born in Manchester, (UK) in 1974. He received a BA Hons. in Fine Art from Loughborough University (UK) in 1997 and an MFA from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale in 2001. Burtonwood teaches at Columbia College Chicago and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Permutations is on view through September 4, 2011.
