Christine Meuris: PERMUTATIONS


The watercolor paintings on tea-stained paper in “Permutations” are inspired by Bargello needlepoint patterns, embroidery consisting of upright flat stitches laid in mathematical patterns. The work explores the line segment and the dot, and the joy, sorrow, exuberance, quiet and simple beauty it is possible to express with them. In the “Stress Fracture” series Meuris explores environmental anxiety by breaking up the tidy mandala, symbol of mental balance and wholeness, evoking images of cracking polar ice.
