Pablo Griss’s strongly expressionist work, had figurative origins that evolved into a distinctive abstract style. In 2010 Griss launched his series ¨Flatline¨ which signaled an adapted style to address the geometric exploration of space.
Currently, these elements (such as rhombi and lines) are specific and recognizable. Griss relies on repetition, contrasts and symmetry in compositions where negative spaces are most important as they are seen through the objects he chooses as rendering a simple, abstract and believable space.
Exploring materials ranging from raw linen, collage, paint and copper leaf Griss became fascinated with gold leaf in which he found an ever-changing background providing depth and atmosphere to simple, abstract, geometric investigation where order is only apparent.
