Los Angeles photographer Grant Mudford has built his career on exposing hidden abstractions and textures locked away in seemingly rigid formal structures. For his upcoming show Grant is revisiting a series of work he started in 1981 and completed in 1982. The Paint Tub series was Grant’s first experiment as an artist with color photography. Still exploring geometry and texture, Grant chose Standard Brand paints mixing buckets as his subjects. Shot straight on, and in color the photos of the paint tubs function as a receptacle for modernist pursuits.
