apologies to Agnes Martin

Drawing inspiration from something as prosaic and disposable as graph paper, handcraft adds value to the grid. The dialog between hand and machine prompts the viewer to reassess the aesthetics of both the industrial and the artistic. A two part series of successive copies, each iteration fails to perfect the original or even the flaws of the preceding attempt.

As a kid, I doubted Agnes Martin's power and beauty through simplicity and concept. I should not have done that and this is my apology.
