This is a short post before two longer related themes: geometry and textiles, both coming up after a brief holiday hiatus. The five images here just jumped into this post, so related are they: the geometry, of course; the layered structure of the "weave," and the complexity of a simple idea.

It's interesting to see these works in a group. The Michael Laube, especially, looks an awful lot like the Imi Knoebel pieces seen at Boone last winter. It looks like there is something else up in the air besides trees... and I like it.

Laube has been doing this kind of work for a while. Interestngly, Knoebel, who was all over the big fair a few years ago, was not as visible. (Or maybe I just missed that row of booths. . .)

Big geometry posts coming up right after, um, what's that holiday?
