Brooklyn-based painter Torey Thornton creates abstract, crudely rendered forms to explore the picture plane as both a spatial field and a medium for conjuring images and sensibilities. Thornton rejects the canvas, instead preferring the textural possibilities of paper, found wood, and slatted panels, all of which serve as the grounds for spray and acrylic paint, as well as collaged objects. His paintings exhibit various influences, from color field and monochrome painting to biomorphic abstractions. Certain elements suggest recognizable forms—cars, the sun—while others are more cryptic, such as the repeated appearance of perpendicular lines.
