Achromatic Series: Complete Separation
This design was based on a shape based exercise that required imaginative problem solving within strict limitations.
Four 6” x 8” compositions had to be created while utilizing only three types of shapes: a circle, a line and a simple rectilinear shape.
Black construction paper, white Bristol board and painted gray paper was used to employ an achromatic design. Construction of the project utilized rubber cement, acrylic paint (white and black), an X-acto knife, a ruler and a rubber cement eraser.
1. No study could have more than six positive shapes.
2. The same components were required to appear in each study.
3. Any component could be repeated, as necessary.
4. Any component could be enlarged or reduced in any study.
