Brad Pasutti – April 2012 – Artist of The Month
There is in his work an overriding concern with space, time and the metaphysical. Areas of precisely defined objecthood comingle with intangible forms that might be situated on the borderline between figuration and abstraction or perhaps are objects in states of superposition poised to transform into other entities. Figure and ground, internal and external being, memory and immediacy all intertwine in a labyrinth of spaces within spaces. The work’s antireductionism is resistant to categorization – both in the particular sense of the art world’s isms and in broader context of the all too human compulsion to fit everything into neatly defined pigeonholes.
