There's a lot of talent and inspiring work I'm enjoying around here!
I feel compelled to share some art of my own...

These are done using acrylic ink and a nib, usually to cover a 50cm x70cm sheet of paper.

current work in progress...

hey, phyto, I wonder what sort of effect this type of drawing, has on to you whilst you do them?

I mean, I would not be surprised if this drawing process, produces some sort of meditative state for you. repetition of similar shapes, I guess you just "do it", without thinking or not?

is it spontaneous or do you think hard before, every new addition structure?

It is definitely meditative, to a degree, while I draw them, and I find to look at them too.

As far as process goes, I will just start drawing a wiggly isometric construction and then at some point decide it is time to reflect it.
So there are phases within the work for me that are purely creative, and then those that I am simply replicating.
Of course, the decision of when to begin reflecting symmetrically is also a creative decision.

There are varying degrees of pattern integrity that the work can display... very repetitive with a few dynamic anomalies, or, very organic, with no clear axis of symmetry - while also showing a certain amount of order.

When you are close, the linework is interesting, but when you step back and the details become obscure, it is the shapes in the negative space that become more of a feature.

These works have recently led me down a line of research that has brought "quasicrystals" and "aperiodic order" into view... I'm reading a little about penrose tiles and non-translational symmetry in geometry - which is prevalent in middle-eastern decorative architecture. - I find that last point of interest fascinating because Henri Michaux (French-Belgian Artist Author) believed the "spikey" geometry in the decorations of the middle-east was inspired by hashish, a source of inspiration I am sympathetic to ! :-) (whether Michaux's hypothesis is bogus or not!)

nice :) I like the repetition of the larger forms. rorschach-esque.
