"Modus Operandi" is a presentation of the resulting images and artifacts premised on the artistic investigation of the found patterns of tinted security envelopes. The works included in the exhibition engage a theoretical dialogue, representing an awareness of the language of abstract painting and offer some possibilities of its future recalling that "painting is more than an act of remembering the conditions of daily experience; it is an exercise in looking; a subject in itself" (Grabner 25).
Based upon serial strategies and procedures, the individual works of art included in the exhibition, along with this and any other supporting documentation, are sub-divisions, which collectively offer a broader understanding that through investigating the whole of visual culture, even the most banal or trivial, and the most marginalized patterns and decorative motifs can become symbolically, even poetically, vested with meaning.
