Working within the boundaries of a minimal palette and intensive patterning, Douglas Melini creates hard-edge abstract paintings that investigate color and space.
“I like to think of the paintings as being built, put together part by part, creating a geometric net for the viewer, a vibratory field.” The paintings’ fields are both solid and porous, and while they are primarily constructed as a mental or physiological expanse, even a cursory review of their titles suggests that one may connect to the work in a variety of ways.
For some time now, I’ve thought of my paintings as transporters, signposts, and images that allow one to consider how one sees things, helping one to get from one space to the next. The paintings reflect my interest in visual vibrations and how our body and mind respond to vibratory experiences. I believe that art can function as a decoder, providing insights into how the world looks; a way of connecting the dots, and really seeing things. For more info, click here.
