Circles, Repetition, and Pattern

In taking a break from working on the cut tyvek installation I went on a bender of repetitive drawing and suddenly I had started a new series.

I feel these are a continuation of the tiny drawings I was doing around the same time last year on circle cut pieces of black card stock. While those were around 3 to 4 inches in diameter, these latest ones are 10.5 inches in diameter on 12″ x 12″ square acid-free paper, and drawn with metallic gel pen.

Repetition of double half circles

This work makes me feel crazy, and frustrated, but I love where it gets to in the end. I can probably say this about all of the work I do…
