Deceptively Dimensional Paintings

Brian Cooper’s paintings give off the impression of tangible depth and volume in spite of their one-dimensional foundations. The Los Angeles-based artist captures the intricacies of wood, debris and various construction materials, emphasizing the unforeseen allure of chips and deep cuts.

Cooper’s pieces are rooted in profound existential considerations as he stated that he makes pieces which “...struggle with their function as devices for transcendent harmony. They do their job while acknowledging the disorder and uncertainty from which they come.”

This notion of disorder is certainly apparent. The beams of colored lumber cross over one another in a haphazard manner, displaying the visual allure of all out chaos. These maze-like puzzles are however ordered in a sense via Cooper’s inclusion of secret messages within his collages.
