About the Exhibition

For our spring 2020 exhibition, Themes+Projects gallery presents Matematisk, new work by Carrie Ann Plank.  This collection of works was initiated during a series of summer artist residencies in Europe and Scandinavia with inspiration stemming from Scandic design as well as the almost unending color and light of the midnight sun season.



Matematisk continues Plank’s focus with visual portrayals of information systems. Fascinated by how principal and equation can be visually rendered, Plank works with multiple layers of data visualization such as: mapping, numerical sequences, fractals, wave patterns, sound sources, magnetic field variations, and other systems of scientific observations. The resulting cacophony of these visual systems,  may be organically or theoretically derived.  The consequent mapping renders a dense, but minimal space, at once contemplative and energized.


Working in multiple mediums including painting, glass work, traditional and experimental printmaking techniques, and mixed media installation, Plank often employs emergent technologies to create matrices to work from, such as CNC routers and laser cutters.  The amalgamation of technological assistance, and traditional hand skills, plays a large role in the work. Many pieces begin as digital rendering, which become the matrix by routing, cutting, or hand carving, while ink is hand mixed by eye and traditionally applied. This results in works that straddle the hand and digital spheres.  Works do not fall easily within a specific realm, but encompass works on paper, mixed media pieces on panel, and site-specific installation pieces.
