The gesture is paramount in Ken Wood's series with Pele Prints. Individual strokes are layered to create the larger image. Each movement exists independent of the others, but all interact with one another to create moments of tension, overlap, and intersection. The print becomes a study in both color and geometry. Ken uses these formal visual cues to guide the viewer through and into the piece. We get the sense that we are only getting a small glimpse into a larger world that exists outside of the paper's edge.
