Abstraction allows me to work more intuitively while the digital composites are more complex and frequently deal with issues in American society.
I am a multidisciplinary artist living in Oklahoma. Currently, my artistic output is concentrated in two primary areas: abstract painting in acrylics and digital composites which are a form of collage. Both of the disparate mediums allow me to explore the process of layering colors, textures, and images or shapes to create an image. Both allow me to examine the psychological concepts of identity and perception with hidden (private) and visible (public) within the artwork. However, abstraction allows me to work more intuitively while the digital composites are more complex and frequently deal with issues in American society.
Trace Logan was born and raised in Philadelphia but has lived in Oklahoma City for several years. His early art education in Graphic Design and Commercial Art led to a preference for a bold style with defined lines and borders more typically found in commercial art applications. More recently, an interest in better understanding people and what motivations, fears, experiences, and thoughts dictate their actions led to the attainment of a psychology degree. His current art practice combines these influences but is not limited by them.
