Michael Rouillard [*1955] · US]. “Phi: Seen/Unseen”, 2018.

Ballpoint pen on paper. Series of unique works

The piece is done by holding 4 ballpoint pens in each hand and scribbling – treating the whole surface at once. The page is rotated in 4 directions and is then turned over to do the same thing to the reverse side. This is done repeatedly until the page is a densely saturated black. Line, by its sheer volume, becomes submerged into plane. The title is: “Phi: Seen/Unseen”. The overall proportions are of a Golden Section (Phi) but since the back of the page is also done only 1/2 of the piece is seen at any one time – hence the title.
