Sayre Gomez
American, b. 1982
Follow

Conceptual artist Sayre Gomez’s body of work includes paintings, sculptures, installations, and artist’s books. His cerebral projects often employ found images and text as a means to comment on the ambiguous nature of communication and personal exchange. His works are characterized by a formalism inspired by typography and graphic design, along with the use of repetition that often bleeds into distortion and abstraction. Gomez’s texts and images are culled from various blogs and archives, selected purely for their formal qualities. He seeks to find subjects “that imbue a sense of familiarity yet remain difficult to place,” as he describes. In one work, Gomez played with presentations of Lorem ipsum, a nonsensical, placeholder text of modified Latin, used by publishers and graphic designers in laying out a document.
