I cannot stop looking at Mary Iverson’s paintings. I’m as fascinated with the final surreal, Tetris-like result as I am with her process. Iverson creates majestic landscapes and then scores measurement lines into the painting, almost defacing her own work. From there she adds an assortment of shipping containers – the simple geometry and flat colors jarring against the pristine backdrops. I find it completely compelling and even a little eerie. So much so, that I’ve built a “1k” week around Iverson’s work. Head over to curate 1k to see more examples of shapes oddly floating in space. Enjoy!
