Wondering how the yo-yo works using simple string wrapped around two circles and about its many paths (“thrown down” or “walk the dog,” anyone?) inspired this new painting, “Yo-Yo’s Proven Axel Path.”
What would be my experience if I could pull the two discs apart from the center axel and watch them spin, as if still on the string?
The result is a composition about circles in space, string gone wild and layering textures, paint and color. It made its debut in my one-person show last weekend – attracting designer and architects’ attention.
