Over the last twenty years I have been experimenting with theoretical architecture as an art form. The content of my work, whether an installation, painting or sculpture is to define the threshold between the inside and outside of conceptually articulated space.
As a sculptor of gestalt space, I have used fire, light, vegetation, water, rope, steel, vinyl and wood. Typically working in the ephemeral media of installation and earthworks, for the “Spaces” project I have decided work in the traditional medium of painting and sculpture.
For "Rectangles” and “Squares," the first two phases in the three-part series entitled “Spaces”, I am using oil on canvas as my medium. To articulate the space that I created, I chose the human form because it is universally understood with clearly recognized boundaries.
In observing the art (Rectangles and Squares), it is important to understand that the art is the defined space itself. There are no lines, background, color fields or image to extend beyond the boundaries of the art. For Rectangles and Squares, the art absolutely ends at the edge of the canvas.Brian Biedul
