The transformation of Escher's work and the simple composition of figure ground creates intricate patterns that reveal an entirely new composition within a painting.  The repetition of a single figure creates voids that in turn become their own figure.  This rhythm is continued as one object becomes another and so on.  These paintings and the clean use of white and black are inspiring to me as I try to understand the inherent patterns created from light and shadow.  The paintings, while two dimensional, foster a sense of movement and carry the viewer’s eyes in more than one direction across the canvas.  The moving geometry and pattern is an avenue I’d like to pursue in designing the light panels.
