MON. 10/1 Value Reduction

Patrick Burgess
M/W class made drawings in which all values were reduced to black or white. Considering a value scale of 1 through 10. If a value falls between 1 and 5 it remains white. If it falls between 6 and 10 it goes black. No grays. These drawings become very abstract and flattened due to the merging of shapes and their metamorphosis into a new shape. There are no linear divisions.  You must be willing to let go of the original form. The results reveal black and white pathways surrounding isolated black and white shapes.
