Johnny Abrahams is an American painter who lives and works in New York. His style is focused on geometric schemes defined in meticulous details that create extraordinary visual effects.
“Beginning each piece with a grid, I can either express that structure or divide it into smaller, increasingly intricate geometries to form a progressively finer language of elements. Put into high-contrast figure-ground relationships, these reduced elements become vibratory, and they destabilise the fixed gaze. After images of colour are generated as light is broken into its constituents by the interaction of the graphic relationships”.
