Neil Cain: Shadow’s Prism
January 3 @ 6:00 pm - January 24 @ 6:00 pm
“These works are a reaction to what I view as a consciousness bias in our culture towards ordered states of being and thinking. I believe this bias contributes to individualistic resource management, social division, and centralized state control, and that the artist must counteract these forces by presenting harmonious alternatives. I paint to present the beauty of ordered and non-ordered states interacting. I see each as integral to the full expression of the other and essential to true understanding.”
Neil Cain is an Indianapolis-native who began painting in 2002. His collections pull inspiration from his work in photography, utilizing movement, exposure, layering, and an increasingly polarized dialogue between ordered and chaotic elements. Trained as a music composer, Neil uses similar foundational concepts in his painting by working in harmonic terms, with ratios of frequencies juxtaposed against one another with or without bounding. ‘Form in flux’ and ‘magnetism of coherence’ form the conceptual framework for his most recent collections. He lives and works in Bloomington, Indiana with his wife, Jenny Ollikainen, their cat daughter, Little Cow, and many plants friends. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally.
