ARTIST STATEMENT

Christian FeneckMy paintings are a process. Through my architectural education I know volume, mass, and form are physical, but through my painting I have found that the understanding of space with these elements is perceptual. The understanding and internalization of the dimensions of space are not constant or objective factors in the design of space. A disconnect exists between the physical and the perceptual, or simply the actual and the understood. My paintings explore the relationship of vision and the under-standing of space by utilizing basic line structures in combination with a layered series of color fields. I strive to have the viewer experience a spatial, three-dimensional condition through their color experience. In this way my work does not investigate a particular narrative nor does it present any explicit message. The results of my work are a physical demonstration and exploration of the relationship of color in our perception of space.
