Michael Kukla – Cellular Vortex Fields

Untitled 18 – Michael Kukla
Michael Kukla’s monochromatic drawings on paper are built up with successive layers of ink to creating cellular fields that have the illusion of depth. Vortices of negative space imply complex nebulous forms fragile to touch, movements of bubbles across a foam surface, and flat surfaces with outbreaks of sponge-like areas. The procedural cellular approach approximates the geometry of packed soap bubbles, when applied to sculpture the memories of these bubbles appear as fossilized remnant textures.
