Myopic Obsession

Each piece in this series crystallizes around an initial mark. In this series, a single loop sets the course for the lines that follow. Each subsequent loop depends on the loop before it, but chaotic variations in the loops' paths create ripples and channels that propagate across the field. The title "Myopic Obsession" indicates that my attention focuses only on the path of one loop at a time, and this repeated motion accumulates to form the whole. This work is an attempt to harness the creative impulse by distilling it down to minimal elements, hopefully resulting in a visual stimulus that is unmistakably handmade and pleasurable to regard.
