Devine’s aesthetic is nonrepresentational and minimal, producing forms that are often improvised, highly expressive and organic in movement. His use of color runs within the Pop Art genre – vibrant yellow, red and blue – to natural renditions of black, warm bronze and ethereal white. Repetition of form, placement and minimalistic patterns create a sense of balance and harmony in his art. Whether wall mounted or free standing, the use of shadow play is elemental in his overall composition, which is a delicate balance between control and chaos.
The search for harmony and balance is the driving force behind my work. The use of systematic repetition, intentional minimalism, and controlled multiplicity and themes quell my inner struggle. Drawn to the strength, subtle beauty and endurance of steel, bronze and aluminum, I welcome error in my process, as it is a constant reminder of the trials in life and as an artist. In my current work I strive to convey the bright, vibrant colors, organic surroundings and organized chaos of California that surrounds me each day.
