Shape Progression

An interesting progression is beginning to occur in these designs. The first Chipisms were created with discrete shapes and dealt with negative v positive shapes, figure v plane, and complementary contrast. The more recent works also explore complementary schemes, but temperature contrast as well- this is a minor aspect compared to what is occurring in design. Individual shapes are being exploded and regrouped into new shapes, and figure/plane is opening to a greater atmospheric effect. The process has become much more time consuming, but intriguing as well- Chipism is moving away from Zombie art, although it remains Obsessive Automatism. OA, if feeding back into itself and informing its own creation and thereby eluding the artist and leading its own creative process, then it truly becomes a media driven form. Which, alarmingly, begins to create an argument as meritorious work.
