BIOGRAPHY & WORKS
Jorge Brinkerhoff, Seeing in a New Light, 65,536 Light Emitting Diodes, Electrical Hardware, Custom Programing, 40 x 40 in. Inspired by Mondrian, Frank Stella, Kenneth Nolan, Gene Davis, Joseph Albers, Andy Warhol, Damien Hirst.
Jorge Brinkerhoff introduces actions of light into abstract images, using LEDs and custom software. With these new media the artist explores, in single digital sculptures, extensive frameworks produced in serial paintings.
Brinkerhoff activates familiar static forms, changing their color, definition, intensity, and duration. His imagery unfolds gradually, as if revealing the live application of pigments, a process that color painters concealed in their canvases. Brinkerhoff reconsiders post-painterly forms and colors, re-conceptualizing the art historical category of abstraction and updating the modern aesthetic with digital color-field imaging.
