Gobolinks are a new series of wall sculptures that continue Natale Adgnot’s exploration of cognitive bias and pareidolia (seeing familiar objects in random information). These dimensional klecksographs are named after the Victorian parlor game that used inkblots as jumping-off points for writing poetry years before Hermann Rorschach applied them to psychology.
Capitalizing on humans’ natural attraction to anything with bilateral symmetry, the artist creates abstract compositions that the viewer might interpret to be insect specimens, space invaders, or masquerade ball masks. Acrylic paint is applied, then folded in two to create symmetry. The added element of texture is achieved through a process of painting and shrinking large sheets of thermoplastic before mounting them on birch panels.
