A different kind of aesthetic is created when events are deployed on a curved canvas rather than a flat ‘two dimensional’ plane. Marks created in this way take on the form of the geometric profile, so that when the results are re-stretched to the two dimensional picture plane, the aesthetic emerges. I call this approach Membrane Art — as it is the curvature profile(s) of the surfaces that underpins the development of each artwork.
The curved membrane provides a re-enactment of nature (containing multi-dimensional values), the flat plane generates the human experience (by compressing the depth), a visual metaphor for how we observe.
All mounted paintings (the relative-ideas) presented on this website have been created using this basic principle. Manifesto
