The Lionel Rombach Gallery is pleased to present Delineation, an exhibition based on the exploration of line and space. Tori Oswald’s paintings are created with an attention to geometry, line and color relationships to create deep illusions of space. Using minimal methods of painting, these works are focused on developing illusionistic spaces that defy the two dimensional surface of a canvas to create an area that the viewer can visually walk through or optically perceive a three dimensional surface. In the most recent works, the illusions created by color gradations and linear perspective lead the viewer through an imaginary minimal place toward a life-like destination.
Tori Oswald received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Arizona in May 2015 and plans to pursue her Master of Fine Arts in the near future. The inspiration for her work comes from studying modern art history and traveling to land art sites. This series of work is a reflection of her recent trip to Marfa, Texas.
