Karli Henneman is a Los Angeles-based artist exploring light and shadow through ambiguous markings of urban spaces. Her hard-edge painting technique offers a meditative perceptual experience through the intricate interplay of simple geometric forms. Using a neutral palette with subtle variations of colour and tonal differences, she creates works of both equal opposition and volume and she questions our modern world through methodical exhibits of shades of gray. The distinct clean lines and tonal shifts of her work imbue a spark of coaction between the formal structures of her subject matter; brutalist form meeting elegant shadow.
Her language of minimalist elements on vertically orientated linen canvases unifies her paintings with both balance and a keen sense of craft.
