William Loveless, #1405, Ink and watercolor suspended in polyvinyl resin glue on cradled wood panel, 24"h x 36"w.
Early in the 2014 season, with new formulas identified, I begin work on the grid design itself.
For many seasons now, I've had a vague desire to diversify the grid format somehow - to allow more flexibility and make it more visually dynamic while retaining its research integrity.
I found that by dividing the format into alternating zones of measurement I could create a kind of visual counterpoint of scale, an optical analogue of musical counterpoint.
Expansion events could now be large, medium, and small and spaced accordingly - a more "punctuated" approach - - and a complex design challenge in itself - a kind of puzzle in which all parts must fit and balance.
