Totem (Blue Violet), 2016
8.25 x 19.5 x 5.25 inches, ink on paper mounted wood, and steel mount
Los Angeles based artist, Melissa Manfull, explores themes of control and chaos in her dense application of acrylic on paper, and on panel. Her interest is on game systems as well as the dense natural landscape that create a psychological fixation, such as in gambling environments (pachinko), repetitive play machines (pinball), board games and natural phenomena. Incorporating these iconographies, Manfull creates hypnotic patterns of hyper-detailed structures, enticing viewers into a visual trance that hint at the arbitrary use of certain symbols and themes.
