The individual and the collective - the integrity of the primary identity vs the give-and-take of social interaction - the iconic self at one level, the organic merging of personalities in a shared space at another level.
These themes are applied in a new series of works that combine individual formulas with a communal space in which they interact.
In this example, 55 formulas were selected and applied at random on the first layer of wet glue encompassing the format surface. Here they push and pull at each other - some establishing dominance, others being contracted by their companions; some merging, others remaining distinct.
Once dry, their relationships become a history of permanent record. A fresh layer of glue is then applied on top, "pushing back" the first layer with a milky translucence once dry..
Finally, individual wet cells are created in which the original 55 formulas are allowed to grow separately.

#1602 (Hex test), 24"h x 18"w, Ink and watercolor suspended in polyvinyl resin glue on cradled wood panel

The first acid test for new formulas, Spring 2016.
I've introduced a tighter grid to allow more tests within the format space.
The hexagonal grid is based on the honeycombs of beehives, which maximizes the number of cells within a given volume. It is also more visually dynamic than a square grid, with more complex diagonal relationships implied.

Below is a photo sent by the collector who purchased the piece, as installed in their home.
