Many folks are using the advent of the new year to organize and simplify their world. Editing can be one of the most difficult tasks, especially for visually creative types, who find such stimulation in what we take in with our eyes. San Francisco artist Mia Christopher creates interesting, elegant compositions by sticking to simple shapes and a limited palette. In this work, less is most definitely more.
Stacks of simple shapes call to mind fantastical characters, books, organic forms or whatever might come to mind.
The beauty in these works is in the color combinations, the fluid visual texture of the ink, the whimsically natural feel of the forms.
