Scott Sueme’s paintings broadly follow a rubric of energetic interaction, where the juxtaposition of two colours is meant to create what he refers to as an “edge”: two off-whites, a pale and warm variant of the same hue, or two colours that match in value but clash in tone, for example. While colour quality makes up the main subject of his work, Sueme’s recent compositions speak to an ongoing investigation of balance and arrangement. As form and colour are composed, we experience their interactions as moments of playful conversation, where elements vibrate with one another and settle in harmony.
