Laura Battle

Rhinebeck, New York, USA

I aspire in my work to a kind of mental concentration that leads to essential language, symbology, and form. The process is highly repetitive (some of the drawings have upwards of 4000 lines), yet it leads me in each piece to exciting optical effects and unexpected ends. A friend introduced me to the word “enantiodromia,” meaning something done to such an extreme that it produces its opposite effect. The combined complex geometries in my work result in a mental and physical space that hopefully one can indulge in in a mystical way. I am not a “seer” nor pretend to be connected to any higher plane than the one here on earth, but I take pleasure in arriving at timeless form through my own complex weaving of lines. Sacred form derived out of optical experience is a primary my goal for the viewer.
