Surface Slow Deep presents four new oil paintings by Los Angeles based artist Fabia Panjarian. Movement, flow and pattern are explored in this body of work. Using intense variations of line and color in the paintings’ physical surfaces, the pleasure of seeing is activated. Panjarian takes cues from the organization of melodic structures of counterpoint to create a similar experience visually. Like inside out clothing, one color is the inversion of the other. Placed side by side, colors interrupt patterns, much like when light reflects and refracts, colors are bleached and patterns are diffracted. This changes the velocity within each painting from glitchy to syncopated, then suspended like swaying in a lava lamp. Reminiscent of slow motion, and seductively wallowing.
Surface Slow Deep is the artists’ first solo exhibition in a commercial gallery in Los Angeles.
