‘Arena’ marks a new exploration that studies elements of form in recreational landscapes. Partly inspired by a youth spent on soccer fields and backyard basketball courts, Sueme aims to capture the unconsidered stillness and geometry designed for regulation in courts, pools, and public spaces. A use of flat colour refines elements to their basic structure while a textural underpainting allows for complexity and variance. The geometric forms create a sense of depth with an emphasis on perspective and pattern set in playful and inviting spaces.
‘The balance between our desire to create spontaneously and to be bound by rules is something I find present in both painting and in our most entertaining games and sports. In this series each piece suggests an anticipation for action, play, or familiar recollection.’ -Scott Sueme 2015
