About this Artwork
This piece uses a combination drawn and painted lines with bold geometric shapes and is inspired by thoughts about textiles, Anni Albers, color and music.
The lines grow from the thinnest line to thick bands until there is an overall rhythm that feels right.
The geometric shapes are bold and playful elements of color. The piece grows gradually without any pre-conceived ideas and is composed somewhat like music, element to element, note to note and aware of the play between delicate line and bold shape.
