Although a grid is often a rather mechanical arrangement, its classical order and repetitive structure expresses a purity of line and clarity of form that I love. Using minimalist grid structures to develop meditative fields of layered graphite, these drawings contrast visual elements of stillness and rhythm, order and randomness, geometric and organic. Diane's process is both methodical and intuitive. Each individual unit of the grid is carefully worked, one at a time, starting from upper left to lower right. Every small rectangle is composed in relation to the surrounding rectangles, and the slow process of building up the forms becomes a meditative, contemplative practice.
