Both of these works are part of an ongoing body of resin paintings first exhibited in Donald Moffett’s show 'Any Fallow Field' (2016) and in his most recent exhibition 'Ill (Nature Paintings)' (2019) at Marianne Boesky Gallery, New York. One of the new resin paintings in the first of these exhibitions was unique in that it resembled a biological spore. Since then, Donald has continued to experiment with this shape in his recent work. In a continued examination of humanity’s occasionally destructive relationship with nature, Moffett in recent years has further explored his long-time interest in biology and, while his resin paintings evoke organic forms, their sharp edges and perforated surfaces also the works with an ominous, violent and political undercurrent.
