story of a work in progress

The original idea of this painting was inspired by thinking about zooming in on the surface of a computerized sphere. Zooming into the sphere one would eventually see a curved surface become flat.  What once appeared round, would become angulated through the pixelation process.

Phase 1

Phase 2

By this point in the project, I abandoned the original idea.  I decided to outline the areas of space I wanted to keep and paint over the rest…. looking back maybe I should have stopped here…


I didn’t quite have the heart to let go of all the beautiful rainbow, so I attempted to salvage more of the project which trapped me into  a complex painting puzzle I have yet to solve.

Phase 3
