A new minimalist drawing from a series of work inspired by a theme of ‘art directing censorship’. I draw through the text only in a pattern of visual gradation from dark to a light. I leave the spaces in the text to interrupt the ombre effect.
This layout was inspired by a Sol LeWitt wall drawing; ‘A Square Divided Horizontally and Vertically into Four Equal Parts, Each with a Different Direction of Alternating Parallel Bands of Lines’.
It’s interesting to allow the viewer to read the text that is still exposed & guess my source materials. It’s part of the game.
My intention is to treat these drawings as trials for larger work. More from this series coming soon.
