My abstract circle drawings are a visual representation of the micro and macro worlds that we inhabit. Through the use of geometric shapes, particularly circles, I aim to explore the interconnectedness and universality of our experiences and ideas.
The circle, with its perfect symmetry and endless possibilities for variation, serves as a metaphor for the vast and complex universe in which we live. In my work, I often layer circles of different sizes and colors to represent the vastness and diversity of the macro world, while also highlighting the intricate and interconnectedness of the micro world.
The repetition of the circle also serves as a reminder of the cyclical nature of life, and the idea that everything is connected. The negative space within and around the circles represents the unseen and unknown, a reminder of the vastness of what we cannot see or understand.
My goal is to create pieces that inspire contemplation and provoke a deeper understanding of our place in the world. I want my work to serve as a reminder of the beauty and complexity of the universe and to encourage the viewer to see the connections and possibilities within their own lives
The collection of the ink drawings explore the depths of life from its most basic manifestations. It is a journey through the microscopic worlds of the primitive circle and the macroscopic tropes; from cell, mandala, seeds, trypophobia, laundry or a planet. I sort, stack, copy, and otherwise manipulate these simple forms until they become a system suggesting a pattern, an interaction, a narrative even. This system forms a larger union that anchors the drawing: an ordering of complexity.
Most of the small scale ink drawings are created during my daily subway commute.
