Interstellar Overdrive

Artist

Name: Mike Nemire
Statement: The motivation for this piece arose from my ongoing exploration of visual perception and color phenomenon. Color is everywhere, but still manages to defy definition through language. I am interested in how meaning can be obtained from experience without being dependent on image. Upon first impression, cognitive reasoning becomes secondary to a primal, involuntary response, thus creating a more genuine encounter. I've recently begun using gray in my work in thinking about color luminosity. Gray, often thought of as a non-color, is in this case composed of all the individual colors used elsewhere in the work. This piece is a great example of how the use of gray allows both the colored and non-colored areas to become luminous and help shape the visual experience.
