A look at our journey into abstract art and painting. These works, or “MARKINGS” as we have dubbed them, are explorations of shape, texture, and negative space. In some of these works, paint or ink is added and layered, then creates forms and spaces by revealing what is below, whether that is color or canvas. These shapes are made through a number of means, such as pressing, scraping, and brushing. In creating these works, we reach a fuller understanding of space, which we carry into the rest of our design work. Likewise, what we learn through the process of our architecture and design is carried into our exploration of abstract space.
