This custom software edition is inspired by Paul Klee's 1934 painting 'Blossoming', enacting simple rules in complex ways to explore Klee's systematic, modernist approach to color and composition. Returning to his love of time-based color studies, Simon now layers in the experience he has gained over the last 20 years working daily with pencil and gouache on paper. (Statement from artist John F. Simon, Jr).
