An exaggerated, minimalist detail of motifs used throughout the series; reflex curves, concrete and muted tones, subdued typography reduced to letterforms without context. This work stands as a kind of lexicon to the Gorgeous Filth series, containing almost as a reference the entire palette and trope of related pieces. It exudes a quiet confidence and authority, like the index of a book or an architectural blueprint, from which other pieces are derived.
About This Artist
Zandra Stratford is a West Coast abstract painter known for bold, semiotic works. Her pieces lay a foundation of elemental earth tones; clay and cement greys and soil blacks, laying strata after strata of contrasting and ambitious colour as a counterpoint to industrial textures, and this overlaid with confident horizontal structures.
