Math Bass (b. 1981) is a Los Angeles-based artist whose practice includes painting, sculpture, performance and video. For the past several years Bass has been developing a vocabulary of symbols that generate a new visual language by blending disparate forms. Her latest series, Newz!, riffs on newspaper-like graphics and are punctuated with bold shapes and bright pops of red. Bass’ intriguing compositions strike the perfect tension between recognition and discovery. Bass’ work was included in the Hammer Museum’s (Los Angeles, CA) biennial Made in L.A. in 2012. Bass’ work has been included in exhibitions at Wallspace (New York, NY), Michael Jon Gallery (Miami, FL) and Human Resources (Los Angeles, CA).
