Artscope 51, July/August 2014 Passing Strange 4 by Adria Arch | Artscope Magazine
art: Passing Strange 4
artist: Adria Arch
medium: acrylic on mylar and paper
theme: Abstract Art

I look at the edges of things. The eccentric and unpredictable shapes found in unexpected places, the puddles and pools of spilled paint and the overlooked doodle found in the margins of a notebook, the swooping lines of tar patching the asphalt after a hard winter.

Older work explores unselfconscious doodles – a universal yet mysterious language. More recently, I use paint spills as a starting point for a series of new work on paper that I began on a residency at Sanskriti Foundation in India this year.
