Announcing the September CATALOGUE: Adam MacHose, Superorganism

does identity. He deals in the things that visually make us up, and distinguish us from one another. We can see we're unique, yet we're also pieces of information. Adam paints people, both digitally and analogue(ly), graphs them, flattens them and makes them new. There's something thing-ish, un-reproducible about his work, but ones and zeros are still its foundation. His work is like fractals. It's portraits. Both discrete and continuous, and very colorful.
CATALOGUE is a monthly event that showcases artists, musicians and other creative endeavors, and is hosted by Joe Saphire, Nick Rice, and Joel VanderKamp (our newly-wed!, ever-absent advisor). The event is a collaboration between artist, curator, community and space.

During the last five years I have made work based on modernist fonts. Using the "modernist DNA" of typography fonts such as Bauhaus, Futura, and Helvetica, I create visual improvisations. I use fragments of found typography to take apart and put back together language. I have explored this subject in a variety of materials, including traditional painting media (encaustic and more recently polymer resins) as well as materials that extend the medium of painting (adhesive vinyl, flocking and metallic films in collage and large installations). Often I choose materials with which I can create a tension between the flat graphic voice of type and the fluidity of paint and handwriting.
