Oliver Arms
American, b. 1970

Although Oliver Arms’s paintings recall the spontaneous energy of Abstract Expressionism and Action Painting, his work, in fact, emerges through a back-breaking, sisyphean process. He applies thick layers of oil paint, then meticulously sands and grinds them down before applying further layers, often taking months to complete a single work. Like religious chanting or meditation, the process has become Arms’s strategy for defusing the information overload he experience every day, translating its energy into dynamic all-over compositions like Big Pink (2011).
