Lines and forms

Large, striking forms made of small strokes wandering across the surface as though they were searching for something. This may sound like a contradiction. But as anyone who practices them knows: doodling and scribbling are processes of playful condensation. They begin with coincidences and can lead to results of compelling necessity. Natural models include bare branches or plant tendrils. Yuyal is the Spanish word for “undergrowth.” But this is only one end of the multifarious spectrum. On the other end are embodied vegetal forms and lines that traverse space – traces of light, as in “Walking along in Dark and Bright.” Or dominant forms stand out from the teeming mass of intertwined lines: sign-like unambiguity emerges from ambiguous chaos.
