Favourites Circle Set Designs


  • this is interesting to me , because I do not usually like the circle shapes as such , yet when the circle is handdrawn and REPEATED ...in a set or formation I find they resonate a different kind of energy then when they are drawn with a compass , perfect circles as it were

  • NOTICING: Although I do like irregular unpredictable shape there is something about SETS that is appealing, sets of handdrawn circles , particularly when arranged in the formation of
    9  - 3x3

  • There seems to be a kind of measured force that meets an unmeasured one - creating a harmonious balance for me 

  • So I have a handdrawn/non-perfect circle and it is filled with lines representing the internal dynamic of both rotation in a circle and a cross counter force that will prevent the circle from becoming 3 dimensional

  • I had a play of combining both handdrawn with compass drawn circles and a little watercolor effect. 
  • When BOTH types of circles appear on the same piece of art, for me , they create HARMONY again
  • If I ONLY  use compass drawn circles , it becomes a stagnant, constricted energy 
  • If I ONLYuse handdrawn circles, the energy is abundant and playful

Experimenting with Hand Stitching Circles


  • choosing form my favourite types of circles I took some hand-dyed thread on added circle designs to the previously stitched vessel that resulted out of the roadside crack drawings from earlier in this study 

  • I explored how far I could take a circular stitch rotation before it started to lift into 3-D space... the outer circle rings were fine, the tighter it got toward the center the more the tendency to lift into 3-dimensional space emerged .I stopped at that level

  •  when adding a sidewards motion stitch to fill the circle I decided to just pre-draw the circle with a white watercolor pencil to give me an idea of its outline and omit the actual circle line around the perimeter but just stitch the " filled circle" as it were . 

  •  I liked the way that shape made me feel, like it suggested , hinted at the circle without containing it ..I would like to explore that a little bit more , making circles or circle forms without the perimeter or circumference emphasized

The Rest 


  • Extension beyond boundaries , there seems to be a sort of easy/unease feeling, like the circle is containing and somehow " leaking when a force extends past its boundaries . 
  • Equally though it is a freeing sort of feeling, like there are no boundaries however tight the circle edge might appear there is always a force that can go beyond ..
  • These circle sets create a feeling of instability
