Carmon Colangelo’s paintings are composed of ink on canvas that are generated from hand drawings and digital media exploring the infinite possibilities of abstraction. Inspired by geometric and biomorphic abstraction, the work experiments with the endless and unique combinations that result from a personal reflexive process and computational system. Remixing, sampling and riffing off of iconic modern and contemporary paintings, the fusion of images is manipulated to create a fantastical illusionistic space by morphing, stretching and distorting geometric planes, colors and shapes.
Colangelo (b. Toronto, Canada) lives and works in St. Louis, MO. He is the dean of the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts, Washington University in St. Louis. Colangelo’s work has been collected by many of the nation’s leading museums, including the National Museum of American Art in Washington, D.C., the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, the Fogg Art Museum, Harvard University, and the Saint Louis Art Museum.
