Monochromatic Forms

These works are an experiment and the result of a confluence of different inspirations coming together: Graffiti Art and Minimalism.

Graffiti letter forms evoke such dynamism in their fluid movement and flow, which sometimes can have a very organic quality. I wanted to incorporate this influence, but move away from the traditional dependence on representational letters, stripping it down to simpler, abstract forms that are a mix of geometric and organic. The aesthetic is Minimalist: a monochromatic color scheme and the restricted expression of using a simple black line to illustrate the forms. Perhaps this experiment has led to what I can only describe as ‘Post-Minimal Biomorphism.’
