the development of partial-dimensional geometry
This collection of artworks further explores the use of repeated, simple shapes and lines translated or rotated to create complexity in a knot design. Each piece is based on a component, shown on the respective artwork posts.
A variety of techniques and media were used to bring the designs to life. The shapes and symbols they create are purely geometry, with no hidden meaning beyond the beauty of intricacy.
All work in this collection was created for and displayed at the Schwarzbart Gallery during January of 2022.
