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!
