expanding horizons

Initially this was going to be a study of ‘crowding in lines’ drawn at 90 degrees from each other (a kind of cross hatching), similar to the picture ‘Busy Skies’. The densest part would have spread out from the centre but after the horizontal and vertical lines were drawn, the middle part was then ‘filled in’ leaving a very satisfying ‘orb’, sun or planet like, hovering in fine balance. This then lead me to an idea of studying this approach to my work, creating these dense spaces in the centre, seeing what happens when this technique is used. It underlies this for of accurate abstact work in that I never really knew the outcome or affectiveness of this work until near the end. This is an example of ‘trusting yourself’ that the hours used to draw will create an affective outcome.
