It’s astounding how little is needed to start a dialogue. A faint flicker on a white surface. Two squares next to each other filling with black, abstract ink drawings. Sounds, rhythms and quiet moments.

It’s astounding how little is needed to start a dialogue. A faint flicker on a white surface. Two squares next to each other filling with black, abstract ink drawings. Sounds, rhythms and quiet moments. Using minimal stylistic devices, Steven Subotnick creates a maximum of crackling tension and opens a wide space for associations.
