“Repetition & Reduction” by Mary Wagner

Thirteen circles, each successively smaller, move across the paper in phases. Each circular plot progressively smaller in diameter and moving in like increments across the page. Each line plot composed of sixty-three loops at the outer edge. Each loop represents one circumnavigation of the inner drawing wheel going round the interior of the outer wheel, 819 revolutions.

Drawn with a little help from my custom designed and custom made drawing wheels.

“Repetition & Reduction”, 20 x 30 inches, pigment ink on Stonehenge 100% cotton paper, signed in pencil.
