Graphic Primitives is a series of nine paintings - oil and alkyd resin on linen - numbered consecutively in the order of their completion. Diagrammatic yet handmade, they are a hybrid blend of gestural tension and mathematical analysis. Their lines mark a web of curves and vectors set within the confines of a limited pictorial space - a closed room or a cloud chamber. The implosion of energy they convey is entropic: gravity pulls toward a central axis in each picture.
