Two of the artists’ work in volume seven (Break) of Lines & Shapes really appealed to me. Illustrators Reka Kiraly and Wayne Pate both used cut paper and drawings (and in Pate’s case fabric) to create playful, dynamic 0compositions responding to the theme. Kiraly’s drawings remind me a bit of the Portocarrero Soy Cuba poster I mentioned a few weeks ago. Pate’s remind me more of a catalog of patterns arranged into a wall piece. Because their compositions looked like they were fun to make, ending up with just enough polish, cut-and-collage is the direction I went in this week.
