Waterworks: AUTUMN RHYTHM, DETAIL

Pen, acrylic on a roadmap of Tennessee

This is a map of Tennessee. As I worked on it I noticed that Tennessee’s rivers formed six blue diagonal poles running north-south in a rhythmic pattern across the state. It reminded me of Pollock’s Blue Poles, Number II. Making this connection caused me to add 5 or 6 more layers of drawing to the map. Each layer contains imagery from the map’s legend. I also changed its name to the title of another Pollack work I admire.
