Surreptitious Aggregation

In January, as initiated my spring 2020 series, I had no idea that we were headed into a global crisis of health, heart and mind. 

I knew I wanted to make a series of abstract works that thematically worked with two concepts.  First, Incompressible, as a state of defiant resistance to increasing pressure.  Second, Flow as a natural system of actions, reactions and counteractions put into perpetual motion. 

Put together, the series Incompressible Flow is an aesthetic encounter with a defiant posture of resiliency. 

Like a fist squeezing a water balloon, the contents appropriately only flow around.
