Search Engines: New Digital Paintings by Chalda Maloff
This series of artwork is dedicated to our most basic and timeless need: the search for personal insight, clarity, and meaning.
The abstract geometric shapes governing each composition suggest the forms employed in ceramics, crafts, or weavings fashioned by the earliest artisans, perhaps the first expressions of timeless existential thoughts.
The visual effect of backlighting or inner glow engenders a feeling of gratification and openness to experience, as it has done from the ages of sun/fire worship through the age of device/screen worship.
Juxtaposition, transparency, and spatial ambiguity pose a bid for viewer involvement and discovery.
