Statement: The “Seeing Circles” prints are from an investigation into how circles recur in nature, and what kinds of natural forms repeated circles could create. This print is inspired by cellular functions. Cellular organization, permeability, transport, and reproduction are some of the concepts of microbiology referenced by this artwork. This art was created by repeatedly dipping the cut end of vinyl tubes into acrylic paint, and stamping patterns.
