vent noir II (1989)
pen and china ink, 9x9 on 15x12in. strathmore

drawings in the 70s

first drawings from software. randomly tiled geometry à la anni albers in a series of eight pieces, only one still existent. red and black inks from felt pen.

since the 70's, creation of line works mediated on a small plotter. programs composed in rocky mountains basic direct calculations of an early small hewlett-packard lab computer. this produces instructions that direct the plotter to draw the proper geometry. one program, one drawing; in retrospect this was slow and small but effective.

influence: bauhaus art, benoit mandelbrot's self-similarity papers.

my painting is visible images which conceal nothing.. they evoke mystery and indeed when one sees one of my pictures, one asks oneself this simple question: what does that mean? it does not mean anything, because mystery means nothing either, it is unknowable.
