“The arch paintings are a meditation on doubleness, both through the structure at work in these paintings and through their figure-ground relationships. In terms of the figure/ground relationship, I am interested in moments where this might shift for a given shape or color field within the same painting.”
Aschely Vaughn Cone (b. 1985) is a New York-based artist interested in patterning, asymmetry, doubling, game boards and things that are two things at once. In her human-scale paintings Aschely creates massive geometric monoliths that confront the viewer, shapeshifting between flat abstraction and portal-like entryways. A study in dichotomies, Aschely’s paintings combine matte with gloss finishes, gestural mark making with precise linework and symmetry with imbalance.
