Bob Hooper

Throughout Bob Hooper’s exhibition of abstract paintings at Regards is a recurring motif: a “circle-square,” to borrow the artist’s term for it. It feels oddly familiar, calling to mind a teardrop, a punctuation mark, a speech bubble, an element of a floor plan, or perhaps even some type of wayfinding marker. And yet, subjected to Hooper’s inversions and manipulations, the circle-square elides any sort of referential comprehension, taking on a life of its own and infusing the show with an unstable, electric energy.
