Primal Symbols

Circles, squares, triangles, polygons and lines, straight and curved, appear in the imagery of all of humanity’s cultures. They are the marks made on rocks by traditional peoples and they form the root symbols that became the alphabets of written languages. They also function as basic abstract shapes which I have used to compose these images.

These digital works were created in Procreate app for iPad. Each is composed of many layers of objects and colors built up gradually to form the finished image.
