Last year I experimented with two pieces that used the holes, 12 x 12 x 12 October 2012 and 12 x 12 x 12 December 2012. Now I'm working on 12 pieces that will incorporate the holes in various ways, with all of them having a 3 x 3 grid as the central theme in the design.
They are on 12" x 12" on board. Six have black on the board behind the holes and six have white, so there will be different amounts of contrast coming from behind, because the holes are semi-opaque. The picture above is of three unfinished pieces on black.Before I last left the studio, I taped some oval holes on the more square-ish holes, to see if I want that to be my next step and yes, I do. I'll be working on this series over the next few weeks and look forward to seeing how they grow.
