Math Bass’s digital work uses paired-down signs reminiscent of of the work of Giovanni Pintori or Massimo and Lella Vignelli. In their ongoing series, Newz!, vaguely suggestive anatomical signs cavort with playful architectural referents—flat, arched entries, staircase risers, and domed turrets.

Bass has gained increasing recognition for their ambiguous, coded visual syntax, which draws on corporal, architectural, and linguistic forms in open and playful narratives. Their work has been exhibited at Hammer Museum, Los Angeles (2018); Mary Boone Gallery, New York (2018); The Jewish Museum, New York (2017); Yuz Museum, Shanghai (2017); and MoMA PS1, New York (2015), and is included in the permanent collections of Los Angeles County Museum of Art, CA; the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, CA; and Yuz Museum, Shanghai, CN.
