The following line of inquiry is inspired by the spatial logics of Persian Miniature paintings:
This work presents an ongoing attempt to code new ways of inhabiting space through an alternating practice of drawing and printmaking. Rather than presupposing a neutral field in which discrete objects appear before a viewer, here, the viewing process itself manifests as the generative locus of multiple discrete organizational planes.
First, a system of seeing is developed through line drawing in which a setting’s semantic and syntactic distinctions collapse, revealing the coordinating capacities of line and plane. Second, the additive process of printmaking reintroduces a relational element amongst the planes by transforming line into color.
