While they are often sculptural, Damag’s works refer to painting through materials attached to this format, as in the case of “Painting” where the figures mounted on crate-like structures are made from canvas and attached by paint. In the truest sense of modernistic inclinations, he calls attention to art making through such inversions of a plane in a practice moved by the principle of emphasizing compositional elements. The grid has resonated largely in his previous series.
