Color Grid


53” x 44″


Color Grid is an exploration of color and value. My approach to design is improvisational and intuitive, with each decision about color and line influencing the next. I started with small Improv compositions and a few guidelines—each one has white and black somewhere in the square, for example. These colorful designs appear to float on a gridded background composed of neutral colors and black lines. The final touch is irregularly spaced vertical stitching lines that bring everything together.
