Michael Covello Artist Bio:
My practice expresses itself through an idiomatic language of hybridized abstraction, where diverse formal elements contradict and complete each other. The spaces I depict within an image are densely layered and at time antagonistic in their composure; with shallow fields of clashing objects, patterns, and color palettes. References to the virtual and the painterly, and thus the embodied and bodiless, inhabit my spaces and complicate their formal structure. The motifs of assembly, demolition, accumulation, and containment are common throughout my work, and highlight the temporal process of creation. For instance, through layering, collage, and removal, compositional elements undergo continuous cycles of emerging, shifting, and concealment. Thus, as I work on a piece, attempts to organize a space are constantly being folded back in on themselves as the process evolves. As an artist exploring and reacting to this unsteady terrain, I see my artistic process as a suspension between remembering, forgetting, and rebuilding.
