About

Steven Baris Toppling A17, 2021 oil on Mylar 14 x 14 in. (bari040) This bold and graphic abstract oil painting on Mylar features geometric black shapes against a rough and patterned background. Baris' "Toppling" series presents "visual analogs of the profound disequilibrium we are currently experiencing both privately and institutionally. All that we assumed to be stable and predictable has been revealed to be otherwise. I liken each artwork to a freeze-frame of a film sequence at the precise inflection point when a building, a body, a psyche, or a society begins to succumb to gravity." "I am drawn to spaces that are engineered to be placeless—from interiors to landscapes—spaces that are highly disorienting and are precisely designed to be passed through as quickly and efficiently as possible. Think airports, expressways, and lobbies. Lately I’ve been frequenting similar kinds of spaces, no less enigmatic and no less banal: those sprawling tracts dotted about the edges of cities and suburbs, characterized by the clotted networks of expressways and county roads and, most importantly to me, those massive, horizontal structures variously called distribution centers or logistics centers. These largely overlooked yet high functioning landscapes disclose many of the same spatial tensions and enigmas that I address in my art making. At the heart of both lies an amalgam of space and structure, both largely determined by seen and unseen geometries. In my paintings and projects I conjure a sense of space that is highly elastic and ambiguous. I aim to juggle and confound those key oppositions that underpin spatial coherence: basic binaries such as close/distant; container/contained; surface/depth; opaque/transparent; and so on. I never really know the true nature of my fascinations and certainly not these forays (actual and artistic) into various states of disorientation and dislocation. Yet I feel we are experiencing unprecedented transformations of our built and virtual environments, and so ultimately these works are neither more nor less than my playful stabs at a better understanding." -Steven Baris
