Devin Synagogue creates detailed abstract drawings that immerse the viewer immediately. Synagogue’s process is automatic and driven by his natural movements and range of motion. He utilizes a customized grip tool and moves in short, quick motions to achieve the tapestry of marks across the page. Synagogue’s internal responses to his environment seem to be captured in his drawings; at times a collection of dense marks beginning to encroach on top of one another. In others, there is clear space and order in sparse compositions.
His lines are meticulous yet agitated, and when combined create vibrant fields of color. This effect is both stunning and bold. The overall look is one that’s contained and interactive, yet it compresses into single incidents of living color when the viewer takes a closer look at each line as a separate stroke.
Devin Synagogue has been making art since 2016.
