This painting is one of the few pieces I have completed that could be translated from a sketch without undergoing any major transformations. The idea evolved from the push and pull of space as defined by circles that were built on (or had the appearance of) movement, interaction, and visual floating both through and on top of one another. The color also translated well from the sketch which was completed using watercolor and graphite. The strength of this piece, I feel, resides in its ability to evolve into an apparent chaotic substrate from a sense of order within the illusion of the center of gravity established by the circles. As line and color moves into the surrounding structures, fields, and forms they both morph into less predictable elements whose existence makes sense and is given power by the order they defy and define.
