CV

Todd Schulz is an autodidactic artist. His assertions that art is revealed through novel expression, and that artists are fashioned from experience has spurred him to remain largely self-taught using experimental emulation to study historical art movements to inform his evolving process. Artists such as Mark Rothko, Josef Albers, and Frank Stella have inspired his commitment to clear austere aesthetics, while artists such as Cy Twombly and Helen Frankenthaler motivate him to embrace the ineffable qualities that arise from chance occurrences in mark making. He applies a clean minimal aesthetic imbued with vivid colours to depict hard edged geometric configurations. The inherent objectless architectonic harmony of his works aim to immersed the mind of an observer in an uneasy stillness.
