Description

This is one of Roman’s treasured Pathway Series that have painterly qualities with “all-over” distributions of pen strokes. These works relate to Roman’s early interest in creating a form of computer automatism. However he never followed “automatism” to its logical conclusion. These works reveal coded arrangement of distributions and a painterly sense that shows a conscious effort to resolve relationships of “chance” and “order”. These are form considerations that permeate most of his algorithmic work.
