PRODUCT STORY
Selena says: My work consists of pen and ink drawings that question the existence of gravity and natural form constrained in white rectangles. The piece can be viewed on the floor, twenty feet in the air, crawling along a stairwell, floating freely in the air, or on a circular plane. The limitless shape of my work challenges the viewers to apply gravity to the drawings and if there is gravity, what is holding it down? Frank Lloyd Wright often did the same when designing a building, to constantly fight the natural force of gravity in his own art and to prove that doesn't always have to seem completely grounded. The effect of the pen and India ink on white paper allows this through the timelessness of the tools and the ever changing marks that appear in the pieces.

We're intrigued by the concept of work that "questions gravity." Take a look at the product story to learn more about Selena's pen and ink drawings, then tell us if this one has your vote.

Organic, with lively energy, reminds me of a conch shell only this is teeming with hash marks appearing to go places.

Reminds me of a brain. Interesting but not my style.

Although I can appreciate the detail, it's not my style.
