The Orbit suite of drawings comes directly out of a daily studio practice. Each is made rapidly and to the soundtrack of looping, cyclical music. I first create combinations of 8 colors, then take four or more stacks (30-50 pencils) in hand and draw looping shapes, rocking the bundle of pencils in a pattern that lays down select colors with each pass. I can usually see only a quarter of the page at a time, so the process involves both chaos and control. Each is named after the song playing while making.
