Struggling marks and images move in and out of focus, straining to become legitimate.
The challenge here is to balance structure with complete randomness. Chaos can be tamed and grounded through color and line relationships. Additions and subtractions are a dance. It is natural to want to organize and micro-manage that which seems out of control. Being ever vigilant not to become contrived or homogenized.
Grids, shapes and lines shift and drift across the page huddling together and breaking apart in slow motion. What is revealed in the end is the residue of the journey. Sometimes using mistakes as guideposts rather than hinderances.
