Tending toward Chaos

This one is red and black ink applied to multimedia paper with a flat wood piece and a calligraphic bamboo point that I cut myself. It is part of a larger piece that I wasn’t happy with, but I thought that the core–what you see here–had more interest with the arching, intersecting lines and colors.  In addition, I desaturated this a fair amount in post-processing as the red is too overpowering in the original.

Prints available from Fine Art America where it is called “Entropy.”

I am been experimenting with ink and simple black and white abstracts. This one is ink on watercolor paper, about 8 x 10 inches. It is the first of a series of experiments using different materials, such as acrylic, watercolor, and ink. To date, all are primarily black and white, although I may start to add more color at some point. I believe that these paintings and ink sketches relate at some point to my wire sculptures, as both explore variations of lines and shapes in space.
