This series finds inspiration in the angles and branches of letter forms, the bend and bow of dancer’s bodies, the rhythms of musical notation, the tangled strokes and marks of calligraphic graffiti, and the hieroglyphs of knotted tree limbs. Each drawing was an improvisation, mutating a vocabulary of shapes to create random runes.
