WATERCOLOR GRIDS

Schematics drawn with graphite create geometric forms filled with color. When arranged next to one other, each field of color seems to be completely different, but in fact, they are mixed from a common hue. This body of work speaks to the idea that despite apparent differences, everyone is connected. Shape choices describe community (circles), conflict (triangles), or conformity (rectangles in rows).

This iterative practice of watercolor painting is sometimes inspired by musical composition. Just as music in the Western world uses twelve tones, many of these watercolor studies use a palette of twelve colors, which are pre-mixed before beginning to paint. New paintings are created until the palette is empty, and then the ritual begins again.
