Math Bass
American, b. 1981

The Los Angeles-based artist Math Bass began her career primarily as a performance artist, but she has since expanded her practice to include painting, sculpture, and video. Bass, who explores a myriad of themes in her work, is broadly interested in playing with the tension between movement and containment. Her compositions feature ambiguous content, lending themselves to different interpretations of the same image. In the well-known painting series “Newz!,” Bass employs the symbols and colors of sign systems to create a visual lexicon of her own.
