post 94

ink drawings by thomas briggs... woah*

check these out, all done by hand, only in pen.

i don't think the photos do the art justice, these pieces are huge!


"Briggs uses a mathematical description of a very small and self-contained linear gestural element. This base unit of action can be iterated by the thousands, each line unique in its path, yet part of a larger structure that becomes apparent as the lines accumulate. In doing so I hope to walk a line between familiar associations of nature and a riveting sense of the uncanny."

personally, my favorites are the first seven.
