Zeno's Pyramid

Ink and acrylic on board.

The first in a series, these paintings on shaped board use the polygons edge to determine the structures within. Leaving sections of the timber surface exposed, the painted lines extrude impossible figures, that inhabit a dynamic space within the surface.

Like Zeno's paradoxes, these paintings have no definite end. For every step taken, we must first reach half of that step, and so on, and so on. The line extends upward folding in on itself, knotting tighter and tighter as it rises, yet remains unfinished, like a pyramid without a capstone.
