Goals

'Lagrangian' is a continuity exploring the social construct of individual versus community. The fracture of my paintings echoes this as each tiny line communicates the innate relationship between an individual and the larger composition of the community.

Process

Addison's focus on an aesthetic subject matter has been developed through his specialized experience in prepress print techniques. Addison's years in printmaking helped develop a strong relationship within the process of technical color utilization and the mechanics of reproduction through analog printing. Taking the fundamentals of drawing and choosing "hatch-lines" as the catalyst to build up value range and color families as the primary focus. Pulling together the concept of "trapping" layers of color beneath to aid in the depth of my work. And using the physical movements of printing to painting large bodies of color meanwhile building up natural texture and form.
