Landon Metz Paintings From His Still Colour Field Series

Landon Metz Paintings Still Colour Field

Landon Metz‘s paintings from his ‘Still’ series are about the material and process; the breakdown between the artist and medium, material and ground, colour and form, positive and negative space. By using coloured dye on unprimed canvases Metz plays with brush and hand – while the dye slowly seeps into the canvas – pushing, scraping, scratching, pulling and pushing the liquid around to form maps of varying texture and opacity, each composition a product of time, moments of instinctual creation, a discussion between the artist and the natural tendencies of the dye.

Metz’s colour field paintings are an intellectual pursuit, an experiment that looks into both the process of painting and the relationship between the work and the viewer.
