Portrait of the artist Madeline Cass. Madeline was my studio assistant 2012-2013. “Madz” is another in a series of images composed of code-generated spirals whose number of wraps is related to the average value (lightness/darkness) of a corresponding area in a reference image. I wrote the initial version of the current state of my code […]

Overlapping square spirals in white and black over a red ground.
Black and white square spirals on gray ground, the black augmented by spirals in a narrower line width. I think this painting begins to balance traditional materials with novel computed tool manipulation – the process and the image become more balanced.
Because of the way the four sets of spirals overlap in my painting Linda in Black, it seemed to be a perfect design for mokuhanga (Japanese technique woodcut). I isolated the four layers of square spiral I’d generated for the painting into four block plans: The spiral density (the number of revolutions of line in […]
Painted in overlapping rectangular (rather than square) spirals, each of the four canvases that make up this work is different but similar. The colors were painted in the same order on each canvas, but the orientation of the rectangles was varied so that, although the reference images are identical, each painting is different. I think […]
This, I think, is one of the most successful of the spiral paintings. A very simple and highly abstracted portrait of Linda. This one is made of only four layers of relatively large overlapping spirals laid out in a grid 10 high by 7 wide. The layers are offset 1/2 a spiral diameter to the […]
My untitled self portrait for a print exchange exhibited at Southern Graphics Council 2019 in Dallas. Description of processes A print is an image made from a matrix.
