In this series, I limit my study to the sphere and the cube. As it is with scientific enquiry, I begin with the indubitable premise that they are essential truths in the study of three-dimensional form. We can’t have one without the other. I then go on to arrange them in an isometric system to see how far pure geometry can be pushed until it accrues complexity. I push it until the system breaks down. The eye is hard-wired to recognize platonic shapes. With the addition of depth to the picture plane, a competing image begins to surface. Compositions acquire new meanings as the subtractive process reveals familiar environments, recognizable stairs, doors, chairs.
