Michael Freitas

Box Gallery  presents Michael Freitas Wood in an exhibition of new grid paintings on wood panel entitled: Consumed.

Wood writes: “When there is a wealth of pictorial information from television, the internet, digital images and motion pictures, how can I breathe life into a static medium?  I offer paintings that explore this issue by creating intensely compacted, highly charged visual designs.”

Built of multiple overlapping grids of contrasting pigmented modeling paste (on panel and on 3-dimensional boxes mounted on the wall), Wood’s surfaces are cheerful, and dynamic, with subtle perceptual play.
