Myriad is a study based on a number of ideas for processing digitally drawn sculptural forms, that I was keen to explore further for my Generator show. The drawing progresses from a circular core to a square form at it’s outer edges, literally squaring the circle. The whole form becoming redolent of a 12” record, perhaps a white label, or unbranded sleeve often used for limited releases and remix EPs, a format which of course comprises a circular vinyl disc in a square paper sleeve. The drawing utilises a diamond shard as a kind of stylus, which refracts colour and light, spiralling outward to form a myriad of pieces, geometrically symmetrical along the core axes. Whilst the luminosity of each piece remains static, the hues originally progressed through a 360 degree cycle, opposing colours mirrored on the main facets of each prism. Creating a broad range of largely unmodulated drawings, I wanted to set up a number of 'ready to use' images, that could be edited, mixed and layered in a rapid process of glazing and recolouring. By working with these pre prepared base drawings, the previously time consuming method of resolving a new piece is replaced by a faster process analogous with the way a recording may be multitracked and edited, to form a number of iterations, or mixes. Allowing for the dynamic assembly of these base elements into a complex series of new studies in colour, form, light and movement. In it's initial iteration I left the core empty, to emphasise the sense of the record sleeve, more recently I've been adding in a laser cut disc, to emphasise the idea of the record, both seem to work well.
