Waterworks: AUTUMN RHYTHM
2006
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 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.
