Moving Lines 1992

1-1 of 1

Among the elements I explored in the early 90s was the ellipse, a perspectival distortion of the circle. Less intimidating than the circle, the ellipse allows the hand and eye to ambulate gently around. As the line reaches the end points, the hand/eye accelerates, compressing into the turn toward the opposite direction. The central axis of an ellipse appears to the eye to be closer or farther away from the traversing line, creating a complex but stable spatial reading. Breaking the ellipse into fragments allowed the lines to float or move through space with an unrestricted energy the ellipse did not offer. Referencing the I Ching, the moving lines project a subtle energy in relationship to the black ink scaffolding hovering in the middle ground.
