The quickest way for me to be contrary is to put my intentions on paper. These haloed circular elements originated back in '07 during a particularly frenzied dye fest when I was discovering the magic of discharge using dishwasher gel . I had it all over my hands and picked up pieces of fabric only to find them covered with discharged finger prints after the washout.
I shuffled this piece around for about eight hours yesterday. I had it pinned to my cube wall at the office and moved things around while I talked with the clients. It felt like I was playing Chinese checkers with myself. As the evening wore on the game became chess and I'm now satisfied that I won the match.
One of the first pieces I used these elements in continues to please me. As I tell anyone who cares, it's a great life if you are easily amused.Below - "Hopped Up" from 2007
