The Development of pictorial rhythm through the use of repeated configurations

It is the purpose of this study to explore the development of a series of paintings which are primarily concerned with the interplay of a basic application of linear bands of color and an overpainting of recurrent non-objective configurations. Specifically, the initial problem is to present, within a square format, a composition that allows a continuing exploration of the possible relationships between a controlled, monochromatic underpainting and an overlaid series of rapid brush strokes that are at once non-symbolic and non-representational color notations.
