Collection: Paula Cahill

Line is the predominant subject in my paintings. I strive to push the historical conversation into the contemporary, elevating the integral role line has played in art, design, and the sciences since its early appearance in rock and cave drawings.

As I prepare to paint, I mix up to 100 gradients of color derived from my memories of scuba diving among tropical fish on the worldʼs coral reefs. By repeatedly laying down the colorful gradients one brushstroke at a time, I create paintings comprised of a single luminous line that meanders and changes color hundreds of times with a light quality, reminiscent of the bioluminescence that emanates from sea-life. Ultimately, these paintings offer viewers an interactive and contemplative experience through the act of visual tracking.
