Justin Locust Looks at Lines.

MARJORIE BARRICK MUSEUM_ A SCHOULTZ MOIRE EXPERIMENT 8 SQUARES

When we asked our summer intern Justin Locust what he thought of the Barrick’s Andrew Schoultz exhibition, In Process: Every Movement Counts, we didn’t expect to learn that he wanted to study fashion design. We had wondered if he would react to the scale of the installation, to the colors, or to the artist’s iconography of eyes, but instead he responded, very specifically, to Schoultz’s use of vibrating, borderless line-shapes in the wall mural Moiré Experiment (8 Squares), 2018.  He explains — with his own illustrations –:

“The part of the show that appealed to me the most was the Moiré Experiment.

I’m a minimalist by nature, and admired how Schoultz used line, color and shape to express complexity with so little information.

I was inspired by Schoultz’s use of lines and implied motion and incorporated that in a series of fashion illustrations. I used a variation of lines and warped them to convey movement in the pieces.”
