Biography

Abstract painter Don Voisine creates hard-edged compositions of graphic swaths of black oil paint, variously applied to wood panels and Styrofoam. Working within these limits, he has created a seemingly unending language of overlapping geometric forms. “Years ago, I began working with imagery derived from floor plans of places I lived in or worked in,” Voisine has said. “Over time the paintings became more and more geometrically structured and less about a specific place.” In their clean minimalism, the works call to mind the sculpture of other New York artists Carl Andre and Richard Serra, as well as the work of painters Kasimir Malevich and Ad Reinhardt.
