Artist's statement

Despa Hondros has traced a particular trajectory in drawing, working from a pared down repertoire of elemental forms – circles and lines – which she methodically repeats within the visual field.  The viewer’s attention is drawn to these repeated forms, where one image can be made up of tens of thousands of marks representing an atom or particle of the subject. Effects of movement, depth of tone and contrast are created by the intensely detailed repetition of the marks, experienced at both retinal and psychological levels.
