Vessels was a follow up series to Circles. Using the same concept, a repetitive painting process with varying results, I attempted to push the concept expressively. A mechanical mark was replaced by a physical active mark and layered rather than laid out across the paper surface. Variations in the temperament of my arm and the medium itself produced a variety of forms, each containing their own personality while retaining basic similarities. The title came from their suggestion of containers, as well as their embodiment of human traits.
