Digital print on metallic paper mounted full bleed to 3mm dibond. 2020
This is a tryptic with each panel consisting of two images taken from an upcoming publication by me in development over the past months. Two image format mimics a 2 page spread of a printed book.
These digital drawings were developed after investigating the anatomy of the COVID-19 virus. It started with the visualization of the pathogens life cycle of viral penetration and colonization of a cell, hijacking it to replicate itself and release copies to spread throughout a population.
With this research as a departure point I developed 80+ vector images exploring shape, repetition, patterning, imagery and color. Having this space & time for a sustained immersion in a digital graphic space has opened up a whole new flatland of play. It's exciting to discover the myriad of possible outputs.
Starting from my hand-drawn past investigation of dynamic symmetry, my increased digital dexterity allows me to develop patterns and arrangements for installation and also evolve my two-dimensional practice.
