Pattern Painting - Circularity

Artist

Name: Carol Griffith
Statement: Pattern Painting: Circularity is one of seven watercolors I did exploring the translation of real world objects into formal patterns. This title, like several of the others, is a nod to Joseph V. Canzani, the first president of Columbus College of Art and Design. Canzani not only spoke of circularity, linearity and rectangularity in his design lectures but applied those principles to many aspects of life. Here I reflect on Circularity as cyclical, as a shape, as a form and, through using reflection, as an illusion of space.
