Acrylic on Cradled Board
24” x 24”- 2021
“It’s the nature of life
All need to Procreate
Two linked together;
And form life anew.”
As you can see, I drew this small doodle (2”x4”) in my notebook on January 14th, 2013.
At first, I thought this might about the development of ideas – the light bulb and opening spiral -but as I refined the sketch, I was pushed toward making all the forms softer and more curve-linear – echoes of the 2 main shapes.
This sketch on velum was 12”x12” which allowed more detail as well as more fluid movement. It was then expanded again to 24” x 24” and unnecessary forms and details removed or improved through a couple of more iterations.
Shapes trigger responses which generate more shapes that I add and subtract until it feels right.
