 As with most of my work, the thread drawings started as an experiment. I wanted to explore color relationships and how much diversity I could achieve within a set of self imposed boundaries or rules. Each piece in this series consists of a thread drawing based on a loose grid frame within the smaller square in the center of an 8x8" square. I'm interested in creating and exploring visual subtleties, tension, and depth in each of the small drawings. Each drawing is unique in terms of color and image. The possibilities for variations  within this set of restrictions is endless.
