Many years later I discovered the charm of the line in and of itself –
the line in space as well as the line drawn on a surface, and the nothing
between the lines and the sparkling when they cross, when they are
interrupted, when they are of different colours or different types.
I discovered that sometimes the in-between lines is as important as
the line by itself.
There is no danger to get stuck, because with each line I draw, hundreds
more wait to be drawn. That is the circle of knowledge with the ring around,
you enlarge the inner circle and the outer one becomes greater without end.
Sculpture, three-dimensional forms of solid material.
Never what I do!
