Diamante I
ink on paper, 21.5 x 13.25 (25.5 x 19.5), 1982 detail

Though not readily apparent, there is a diamond shape imbedded in the lines of this drawing, whose four quadrants are transforms of each other--reorderings of their tiles based on column and row exchanges. Those operations are obscured by the rule-based dissolving of lines in the basic geometric shapes of the tiles, which leads to new, emergent shapes. The diamond pattern is made explicit in Diamante II.
