Arcs, Grids & Zags
Lines are an elemental component of the visual world. Alone, they often provide pathways for our eyes to travel upon. Together, they may begin to elicit structure and form, building upon each other, exponentially increasing complexity from simple units. The convergence of many lines may be read as networks, and from a distance, values or tones. This series of printed artworks transforms lines into meditative geometric images. The line networks evolve into dense and sparse areas alike, implying shapes and volumes, pushing and interjecting notions of presence and absence onto a two-dimensional plane. As the lines of these compositions interact with the woven cloth support, interference or moiré patterns frequently result, forming additional line structures. Paradoxically, both quiet and dynamic, these works allow viewers to immerse themselves in contemplative abstraction while also locating familiar ground within the images.
