This is a pyrographic drawing with colored dyes done in the style I have been developing for many years I refer sometimes as “taichi” drawings as the movements of the line are based on my visceral sense of push/pull as in Taichi Pushhands movements.
The pyrograhic element is the inverse element bounded by the dotted boundary. I discovered years ago how the dotting effect I observed in traditional Australian art will activate a line or a space. I used it to outline some flower images several years ago with great success.
There was at that time a strong interest in images of flowers. Commercial spaces like hotels and hospitals preferred the neutrality of them, I think. The active nature of the pyrographic drawing comes out of the combination of the dotting from these earlier images combined with a drawing style that actually pre-existed these images. I was creating maze-like pencil drawings before the ’80s, even applied them to canvas. But I believe they were too sophisticated for a commercial space.
