On The Fringe of The Field
First a mark, then another one. Between the marks, a line stretches.
Occasionally the line circumscribes or implies a form. This delineated form leads us to a figure/ground formation and the drama of dark versus light, hard edge versus soft transition.
From forms I find within, to forms I recognize outside of me, families of work develop. Some works calling out to each other across the room asking to move closer, eventually, forming diptychs or triptychs, and growing in scale. One sees larger themes develop, revealing new lines of inquiry.
