MATH BASS X DELUGE DESERT VEINS CREWNECK SWEATSHIRT
The image here is a 17th-century camel skeleton rendered by Math Bass in oil on linen, from their 2021 exhibition “Desert Veins” at Vielmetter, Los Angeles.
Marking the artist’s first body of work composed of oil paint — the exhibition introduced a significant shift in medium, technique, mannerism, and possibility. Continuing to utilize their signature visual lexicon of symbols and shapes, Bass challenges and softens the notably graphic composition(s) found throughout their previous bodies of work. Along with the appearance of hand-painted gestures and an enhanced sensuality amongst the artist’s personal semiotics, Bass allows for a wider range of symbolism, as well as an intentionally spiritual angle to come through their already ambitious and cosmological practice. Within these additional levels of engagement, Bass creates a visceral sense of forgiveness towards the rigor of maintaining a hard-edge universe, conveying a more 'irreplaceable moment’ within their expressive powers.
