Field Kallop

Field Kallop’s recent paintings are an exploration of geometry, dimensionality, color and pattern. Her application of thin washes of paint to the canvas generates a colorful grid that serves as an underpainting. This armature gives way to the creation of the geometric forms and complex patterns that interact energetically with the layers of paint beneath. This accumulation of color and form is systematic and precise, harmonious and balanced. These paintings reveal Kallop’s long-standing interest in math and science, as well as her affection for a wide variety of artistic traditions such as tantra drawing, textile practices and modernist painting. Kallop is particularly inspired by the work of abstract painters Emma Kunz, Hilma af Klint and Agnes Martin. She believes in the spiritual power of art, and hopes that in today’s turbulent world her paintings will offer a quiet moment of calm introspection.
