My personality is one that thrives on order. While not a precise person by nature I do like things to be “tidy”.
There’s something about a zig-zag that fits perfectly with my desire for order and my inability to subscribe to strict precision.
Terhi Tolvanen has entitled the piece of hers, that I am to respond to from the Coda collection, “Zig-Zag”.
To my eye, there’s the perfect combination of organic/free form and precision/order. It feels unified and tight, but also relaxed and natural. The colour palette is reduced and lets the forms speak without too much visual distraction, despite the texturing.
I’m looking forward to trying to take the lessons learned from this piece and transform them into pieces that have my voice.
