ac and david
both artists use patterning, forms, and color in combinations to enhance or break from concealment. David Anderson observes organic and manufactured textiles to bring together what he considers the "inner" and "outer"-net, and Ann Catherine Carter uses commercial logos and fabric patterns found while brownsing the web on Amazon. Both artists confuse mark making and consumer products, advertisements, and the way in which the hand inevitably reveals itself in both physical and digital ways. Both embark on an investigation through art history and distort the percieved chronology playfully and sympathetically, hoping to find visual poetry while thinking of the multiple ways in which painting can exist today.
