digital drawing

This digital drawing series grew out of my creation of different sets of symbols and character systems.

As the symbols began to evolve I started to morph the symbols into hybrid images coupled with intense color.

I have been studying the work of Richard Coleman, Paul Klee, Max Ernst and Josef Albers. Klee and Albers in particular were very focused on color theory. Last semester I was creating work that equated different sound frequencies with their corresponding color frequencies. As I created these images I was heavily influenced by the music of David Hykes. The music uses mostly layered meditative voices. So I found some synergy between color, form and sound once again while creating the imagery.

I then started making very small drawings within tiny squares on paper. These gave me a little more space to work with and I could get away from just strictly symbol driven imagery. I followed the meditative state of the music as a way to clear my thoughts and draw intuitively. I then scanned in the images, treated them in Adobe Illustrator and enlarged them considerably. I am continually interested in shifts from the micro world to the macro world and how those shifts affect our perceptions.
