Speed creates detailed environments of seascapes and turbulent waters in pen and ink, offset by loosely painted geometric shapes and wonderings that interrupt the interiors and landscapes. From his artist statement: “Line and color represent the forces of nature, like water, fire, and wind that invade and sometimes destroy our living spaces. Architectural forms metaphorically reference both the stability and instability of identity.“
The exhibit will feature 10 new mixed media works on paper. In this latest body of work, color choices mostly center on quiet neutrals but occasional moments of acidic yellows, vibrant greens and pinks dot the surfaces. The occasional human figure is suggested in the work.
Speed is new to the TEN Collective and this is his second solo exhibition in New Orleans. He lives in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and teaches all levels of Painting at the University of Alabama, where he is an Assistant Professor of Art.
