Justine Ashbee

Ashbee's work is hand drawn paint pens done in a free form fashion. The artist describes making the work as a Zen experience or getting lost in the making of the form. I think the movement works well and Ashbee makes a complex image with a limited palate of the paint pens. The forms seems to fall into a mathematical investigation of space and shapes. This kind of work has been popping up lately, but I haven't seen it done this good before. Ashbee's work is in galleries on the West Coast of the US and a more recent show in Spain.
