The Circles series was initiated during my M.A. Fine Arts project in 2016 and has been ongoing since. The circles were created with the artist’s studio and deliberate artistic practice seen as activities of creative play in mind. Self-imposed rules apply in the playing field of the artist, in the studio space, and with regard to the materials used and disciplines adhered to. Materials can be manipulated in specific ways when rules (ludus) are applied to creating visual art. In the Circles series, this kind of disciplined routine practice of daily/weekly creative engagement in play is manifested in each circular shape which suggests a specific ludic sphere. The rules applied here were that the work must resemble a circle, be 28 x 28 cm in format, and have uninterrupted lines made with a 0.1 pigment ink pen.
