Notes on track

Discrete forms doodled on the margins in convoluted geometry oddly become interlaced overlapping pop cultural tessellations. Not quite fooling the eye but visually comforting in its lazier simplifications which function then to duplicate childhood Hot Wheels plastic tongue-and-groove track that in thirty inch length strips made for utile makeshift pirate scarabs.

The frontality of the overhead view recalls the scale shift expected when telescoping to a larger picture plane and what was orange is now gray, calligraphic in its linearity that harkens Franz Kline except predictably finite and closed rather than openly composed begging something structurally flat rather than patterned image.

Yet so many combinations from a limited supply of prefabricated materials to affect design options so that a lone figure eight lays down ad infinitum.
