New paintings and collages by Nicole Mauser
Pressure, Drag, Hesitation and Speed, are conditions that underscore a history and decision-making process, which can be charted back mark-by-mark within a painting methodology. These conditions are driven by a formal rigor that is self-aware of materiality. This on-going series of paintings and collages employ “found” marks and residues, collected on the periphery of the artist’s studio practice. They function as reference and act as points of interchange between information and knowledge. Sensory information is residual and acts as a prompt for an abstract vocabulary to develop. Line, form, shape, and chroma, transfer a dialogue through muscle memory via viscous materiality. Compressions of space multiply and ricochet, functioning to create pockets of shallow depths to confront the viewer. These works do not beg the question why forms begin and exist, but how they will play out.
Nicole Mauser (b. 1983) lives and works in Kansas City, MO. Her works have been exhibited nationally and internationally, recent exhibitions include Carrie Secrist Gallery, Chicago; The Dolphin Gallery, Kansas City; H&R Artspace, Kansas City; SBG, Kansas City; Punch Gallery, Seattle; and collections include the collection of the The Alexander, Indianapolis. Mauser is a co-founder of the artist run gallery, PLUG Projects. Upcoming exhibitions include, Contemporary Abstract Painting at Ringling College of Art & Design featuring, Kris Chatterson, Omar Chacon, Vince Contarino, and Peter Plagens (February 22- April 3), and a two-person exhibition with sculptor Kate Perryman curated by Jessica Baran at Ft. Gondo Compound for the Arts, St. Louis (September, 2013).
