My practice centers on the theme of doubleness, both through the meditation on the thread, where two discreet threads, artfully joined, become one, and in the arch paintings, which divide and unite through their shifting figure-ground relationships.

Aschely Vaughan Cone

About the Artist


Aschely Vaughan Cone (b. 1985) is a New York-based artist interested in things that are two things at once. Her most recent body of work takes the conceptual and literal subject of the thread as its primary focus. The images range from playful meditations on the path of a single line, to depictions of quintessential weaving diagrams. A study in dichotomies, Aschely's paintings combine matte with gloss finishes, gestural mark-making with precise linework, and symmetry with imbalance.
