In his new series of textural wall pieces, Curtis Olson iterates an ancient, simple form to create works of multi-hued vibrancy and symbolic complexity. Using the basic form of a circle within a square, Olson thinly slices each circle into an unexpected spectrum of saturated hues. He remarked, “by combining unique color combinations and a universally powerful symbol of a circle within a square I aspired to create objects that actively participate in peoples everyday lives.” Olson says that among other concepts, the series was inspired by Native American medicine wheels and dance shields, 1970s sunset t-shirts and album covers, modernist color field paintings, and Buddhist thought. Seen as a group the pieces are both meditative and invigorating, and at once soothingly spare and chromatically stimulating.
