“Straight Line Spirals”
12″ x 12″
Acrylic on wood

Notes: Made entirely of straight lines. The design began with squares, each consequently clipped at the midpoints of its four segments by a nested child square, creating four right-angled isosceles triangles. Every square was drawn within its parent square and rotated forty-five degrees, after which it became the parent of the next square, and so on, working from the outside in. The spirals were achieved by selectively painting certain triangles black, others white. By ignoring what’s black and what’s white, visualizing the wireframe, you’ll see that the spirals are nothing but triangles.
