Echoing Barnett Newman’s monumental stripes, Mark Grotjahn’s paintings reconstruct the architecture of abstraction on human scale. Set on narrow and elongated canvases, Grotjahn’s Butterfly series renders the sublime as an intimate and attainable pursuit based in concentrated process and palpable surface. In Untitled, tarnished tones radiate in off-kilter perspective, their concrete forms alleviated by the subtle variation of bevelled brush strokes, creating an aura of weightlessness and luminosity. Flanked in the bottom corners by the artist’s stylised initials, Grotjahn frames his painting as vanity and cherished endeavour.
