Reminds me of life...or perhaps it is the title you have chosen.  Don't we all experience "Odd Connections" at sometime in our lives?

I like the open feel of the circles.

Very nice.

san-T your work is so fun to look at, thank you! 

On a critical note the paint job seems rushed, it doesn't show the control you have over the medium in your paintings. 

Keep up the good work!

It's nice, but it's a bit busy. Kind of gets too far away from your paintings.

You might try making just a few circles at a larger scale. What if the red circle and the colored circles on top if it were the composition, just much larger, like maybe two feet in height? Or maybe even one big circle that really mimics the line quality and variance from you paintings. Lots of options there.

Also, the circles are a bit too circular. One of my favorite things about your painting is the inexact nature of the circles and the flowing lines that comprise them. This piece is kind of stiff because of the relative rigidity and precision of the circles. Also try making open circles, maybe start with an armature and build around that, the closed circles kind of add to that uniformity.

I do like the coloring and use of string for the line work. I'd like to see the string expanded upon. What if you made some lengths of string, varying the thickness in some areas by adding more string, and then shaping them to form the loopy lines from some of your paintings? You get them into a position you like then use a glue or epoxy to fix them in that shape permanently. If you could find a way to make them rigid enough, you could forgo a base entirely and make the lines/strings touch the ground acting as a support.

I do like it. As you can see there's lots of ways to play with it. I'd just like it if future pieces called back to the minimal, energetic, and open qualities of your paintings.

Oh wow, thank you so much for your well thought critique. You brought up some great points and ideas.

I'm still experimenting with it so this keep grown and evolving. At this point I am content with this piece though.
It is a balancing act, and the fact that it's made from paper is limiting in a way. Strength wise, the perfect circle is more stable and it's hard to go too big with it.
I really loved the idea of getting rid of the base, going to experiment with that when I get the time!

wow, you're too nice...to me that critique basically sounded as "i would like this artwork more if it was a different artwork that i would like"

lol, in a way it sure did sound like that, but there were a lot of interesting points to think about... and my response was pretty much "here's a bunch of excuses why it can't be too different"... I guess the biggest point of it is that I simply love it the way it is now =]

This is awesome! It really looks like one of your paintings jumped off the canvas and into our three dimensions. =D
