Once started, the artist’s drawings are self-determined, with each new mark made according to predetermined rules. Each rule is influenced by its surrounding marks. Drawn with a fluid pen on Yupo, a non-absorbent paper, short line segments are arranged to resemble woven structures. The paint naturally pools at the end of each segment, darkening the end like a shadow and creating the illusion of three-dimensionality.
