Large format canvas in bright colors and abstract shapes. Yellow

Cade Pemberton, Perfume For Robots (2023). Acrylic on canvas. 50 x 60 in.


Intense color, cast shadows, flashes of light and the erratic energy of abstract or figurative shapes, inform the work done over the last few years of Covid and confusion. My images are filled with suggestions and surprises, but no sure answers. Planes, edges and fields of shapes and colors jostle, clash and push against each other. Using a palette inspired both by nature and the incessant noise of advertising and social media, I experiment interchangeably in the worlds of painting, prints and drawings. All is true or none of it is in these images. I offer no closures.
Or disclosures. Everything is subject to the viewer’s interpretation.
