“Circles are interesting. They can be 2D, 3D or implied. What do they mean? What can they tell us? What is the deeper insight they help to convey? They can contain things inside or keep things out. Circles can give a feeling of wholeness, that something is complete or perfect. A circle can also be a hole, a sense of emptiness, or a space. Circles add something interesting design-wise to the artwork. By juxtaposing organic shapes, such as the human figure, with more geometric shapes, a symbolic mood is added to the piece. The symbolic nature of art is what I’m focusing on.”
