I've never met an organic shape I didn't admire. Especially the sphere. When I was a kid the triangle seemed to hold some greater mystery, maybe because it appeared less often than the circle or rectangle. Of course there was the roof and the conical hat and I do remember thinking that 2 triangles placed end to end to create a diamond was rather magical. But the circle had no sharp edges or points and was inviting.
This fondness includes the oval. I like it's simple dynamism and often think of it as human like and companionable. Stretched or tilted it appears to be on the move-becoming or coming out of itself or suggesting an entry or portal.
My drawings explore these relationships of form and it is as much about the shapes themselves as the spaces in between. Black and white can help make winnowing a bit easier. Some of the drawings make it into my paintings and are translated through scale and color. I've started to transfer them into the paint and find the surface and line quality of the ink skin a good contradiction to the paint.
