This piece is made entirely of various sheets and bits of antique
Japanese ink-washed paper. As I was layering the papers, simply
experimenting, this image showed up, which immediately made me think of
outstretched wings, a beak, and a tail, all heading toward the upper
left, the northwest. And as I gazed at it, I began to notice the subtle
circular pattern as well.
Yes, I know this may sound a bit woo-woo, but
ravens and crows are meaningful parts of my life, as are the contrasts
between hard, linear elements and softer, organic ones. So that's what I
offer you here: mystic weirdness and basic geometry!
