abstract art, a systems view

From fragment to pattern

with 3 comments

I posted about this fragment that I had once cropped from a small painting (oil pastel on paper) and then years after it had been lost or sold I found the cropped edge

I have started to sketch out what a painting might look like based on a repetition of the fragment

  1. I love doing this, Andy. I’ve found great inspiration from my paint-smeared table cover or mat board scraps that I’ve used as squeegees. I’m a scan-aholic! I like what’s happening with your fragment.

  3. Thank you Martha and Zorgor for your comments. It is surprising isn’t it? Even, though, in a way, it probably shouldn’t surprise us, it does (?)
    And thank you all for ‘liking’, it is helpful to get feedback on these little experiments, especially as they may form the basis for future paintings.
