Math Bass (b. 1981, New York, NY) is an LA-based interdisciplinary artist whose work abstracts recognizable forms into brightly colored shapes and hyper-stylized imagery, forging an ambiguity that allows different interpretations of the same image. In their popular series Newz!, Bass creates a visual lexicon of forms and symbols that is skeptical of objective meaning. They describe their interests broadly as a tension — between movement and containment, between language and meaning. Recent solo exhibitions include Tanya Leighton, Berlin; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; The Jewish Museum, New York; Yuz Museum, Shanghai and MoMA PS1, New York. Their work is included in the permanent collections of LACMA; the Hammer Museum, LA; MoCA, Los Angeles; MoCA, San Diego and Yuz Museum, Shanghai, CN.
