"To be focused and dedicated to doing one simple thing can perhaps be the most transformative thing."  -Artist Louise Despont

Just watched PBS’ Art 21 video with artist Louise Despont. I’d never heard of her but am thoroughly inspired by her drawing process using architectural templates and repetition. She works in a spartan studio on the floor, intensely drawing with pencils on smaller sheets of paper that she combines to make much larger patterned images.

I can relate to the obsessive process. She’s very eloquent in describing why this process touches the Universal.
