The Los Angeles-based artist Math Bass began their career primarily as a performance artist, but they have since expanded their practice to include painting, sculpture, and video. Bass, who explores a myriad of themes in their work, is broadly interested in playing with the tension between movement and containment. Bass's 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 their own.
