Tiling Vortex

One of the great influences on my work has been M.C. Escher. This painting reflects two of his recurring themes, tiling and multiple perspectives. A "perfect tiling" divides the plane into a pattern of pieces with only two colors, such that two pieces of the same color only touch at their corners, not along their edges. A checkerboard is a common example.

In this painting I imagined multiple variations of a standard checkerboard pattern curling up out from under the canvas and flowing off in different directions, with different perspectives.
