Painter and draftsman Mark Grotjahn is known for his ongoing investigation of perspective.
In the "Butterfly" paintings, he uses dual and multiple vanishing points to create complex compositions of radiant, tonal color, alluding to such touchstones in the history of modernist painting as Russian Constructivism, Op Art, and Newman's "zips." Alongside perspective, he has pursued ideas like color restriction, seriality, and the sublime. In his more recent "Face" series Grotjahn retains his radiant motif but replaces geometric rigor with totemic energy.
