- Mechanisms VI: mixed media artwork by Louise Philbrick featuring lead grids and found objects

"Mechanisms VI" is a mixed media piece featuring forty-nine, 2.25" grids and all manner of found objects. I approach each of these grids as a unique study of sorts. As I work, I begin to arrange these "studies" on the surface to find a rhythm that appeals. I have learned that each new study completely changes any rhythm in-the-making, so I wait until I have about five to ten grids left to make before investing in a particular arrangement of those already complete. (There are too many design variables at play to do otherwise. It can be crazy-making.)
