"I Called Her Yesterday (But Her Name Was Tomorrow)" Linear Abstract Painting

About

40"x50" oil and graphite on canvas (signed on reverse). This large scale oil painting by Mark Masyga created with a stunning linear abstract composition. Masyga employs drawing techniques in his painting to create bold lines of color, which overlap and intersect. A bright red form transitions into an earthy orange in the center of the composition. Burgundy lines are overlapped with midtone yellows, teal, violet, pink and light green lines. The abundance of color variations in this painting do not overwhelm, but have an active conversation which is balanced in tone and intensity. The colors hum in a lyrical harmony. This painting has a controlled depth to the visual surface, while the warm grey background creates an endless atmosphere, in which the lines take on the feel of objects in space. The sometimes coiled, sometimes kinked lines have a structure to them which that is rendered through the artist's intuitive relationship to color and density. Masyga's masterful knowledge and background in color field painting shows a heightened sense and use of color in this painting, which he relates to chance encounters on the canvas. These become edited and directed until a harmony and accord is achieved in the complex structure and layering of lines and boundaries of color. Mark Masyga received his MFA from the Art Institute of Chicago and currently lives and works in New York. The recipient of the Edward F. Albee award, Masyga has participated in residencies in Montauk, New York, Skowhegan, Maine, and was featured in the PS 1 Studio Visit Program. Mark Masyga has exhibited extensively in New York and Nationally. He is represented by Front Room Gallery in New York.
