If you are wondering what is the right answer to this confusing question, let us help you: they are called sculptural paintings. Although Josh Sperling’s work raises a few questions, it also inspires creative wonder for the process and the technique by which it is made. The New York-based artist’s born in Oneonta and now working in Brooklyn uses bold colors to create abstract geometric shapes combining them in connected canvases – the canvas is stretched across wooden shapes finishing a geometric puzzle. Sperling’s plywood works are borderline wall sculptures creating relief which titillates observer’s perception instigating wonderful visual enjoyment.
