Undulating Biotic
Size: 4 1/4" x 6 5/8"
Medium: Ink
Surface: Book page
Style: Abstract
Artist: Thaneeya McArdle

This is an intricately detailed ink drawing done on an antique book page. The page is from a chapter titled "Colloids" from a book called "The Structure and Properties of Matter", published in 1928. The book page is slightly yellowed - I'm not sure how well that shows in this scan. The abstract forms of this drawing are elegant and flowing, referencing chimerical organic forms. I like the way the forms cover the words on the page, creating a tension between linear thinking and fanciful forms.
This drawing is SOLD.
