Catch My Drift
Haunch of Venison is pleased to announce Catch My Drift by Doug Argue. Minnesota-born artist Argue will present four monumental conceptual paintings in the main gallery. Argue is best known for his large-scale abstract paintings that explore infinite space with a scientific and mathematical foundation. Argue often incorporates text—as he equates letters to atoms—and rearranges them, constructing new meanings to found writing. A highlight of the exhibition is Argue’s Genesis that measures roughly 13 by 19 feet and evokes the cosmos, but with closer inspection reveals distorted text. Argue appropriated letters from the book of Genesis, which he then altered in Photoshop and reassembled onto the painting to form a celestial-like, infinite image. In 2009 he was awarded with the Artist of the Year by the London International Creative Competition.
