Arranging the variable grid (see previous post) in a symmetrical structure gives prominence to the larger expansion events and creates a hierarchy of of emphasis, with a kind of rippling echo effect from the center out.
Overall, this can be seen as something of a return to a more predictable grid, but with an important difference - it allows the "shepherding" of the viewer's attention along individual rows of cells.
Groups are now functioning as vertical columns, with hues changing gradually as they move up and down.
It also suggests the idea that a glue painting can have a "center". which presents a whole new realm of possibilities for inspiration....
