Geometric still lifes After a long period of the use of geometric components I felt the need for some change. There is always a risk of rigidity in the strict geometry, even when my handwriting provides some balance. In the series 'Geometric still lifes' I use small (identical) twigs and / or (a limited number of )(identical) pebbles or asphalt motifs as components. I kept the overall structure like a grid, squares and circles. |
