Abstract

The author presents examples of his drawings and paintings, each based on a basic shape that is derived from one or more closed curves. During the course of preparing three series of works, he chose a classification system wherein each work is designated by a code consisting of four numbers: the number of closed curves employed in constructing the basic shape of a work and three numbers for line intersections of the types V, T and X found in the shape. The classification system is of interest to him, because it provides a basis for establishing a kind of order among his works. It also serves as an aid in pointing to shapes that he should consider for use in future works.
