Cynthia Morefield’s Modular Paintings

reservoir2-600The latest issue of the online journal Mixitini Matrix features Cynthia Morefield’s essay “Reservoir–An Experiment in Viewer Collaboration,” which describes how her modular work requires viewer collaboration. Each individual artwork is comprised of several modules that can be rearranged to create different patterns based upon viewer preference. The modules themselves are very interesting. They’re multilayer works that are etched, scraped, and drilled to different depths to reveal different layers and colors on the surface.
