Alex Paik: Studio Visit

Image coming soon.

Paul Behnke photoblogs a visit to the studio of Alex Paik.

Behnke notes that "Paik's small, delicate, abstract compositions of paper, gouache, and colored pencil provide complex visual experiences form humble means." Paik writes of his work: "The work reflects my love of contrapuntal music, imitating the way that the theme of a fugue is repeated, turned upside-down, and folded into itself. There is a sweetness about the work in the twee color palette and the toy-sized scale, but at the same time a fuck-all swagger in the laughably lo-fi paint handling and angular, chopped up forms."
