Abstract expressionist pencil and ink drawing, blue, aqua, graphite and violet colors. Circular figures, lines loop, swirl, and spiral in orbit around a center. All clashing together in a cataclysmic creation of the universe. Dozens of lines and patterns melange together in a whirling motion, the different color ink and graphite piling on top of each other in this drawing create depth and dimension. Pin holes, smudges, ink hazing from moving gears, all of my artworks eccentricities show up in this drawing. "Big Bang vs. Genesis", 14 x 17 inches (35.5 x43 cm) pigment ink, color pencil, graphite pencil on Strathmore cotton rag bristol board. I create my drawings using custom gear wheels that I design and manufacture, my very own drawing machine. I use my drawing wheels to produce complex and intricate art ranging from simplistic modern to chaotic abstract artworks. Drawings are created with numerous, individually drawn, line plots. My pet name for my art is Parametric Drawing as each line I draw can be described by a parametric equation. Abstraction of the abstract.

Going round-and-round is the central principle and action of Mary Wagner’s drawing practice. At the core, these drawings are simple, curvilinear paths arching about some absent center like an interstellar object flirting about a gravity well. The rigorous lines warm and complicate through repetition. Patterns pile on top of each other. The slim edge takes on form and depth, like cotton candy wisps or subatomic particles, cohering into something a bit more solid. Value and texture suggest dimension and movement. These things coax and combine into a sort of non-subject; or a subjective subject matter, inviting the viewer to project themselves. They are exercises in minimal purity, or expressions of chaos and order. They are complicated networks or psychedelic dreamscapes. Wagner was born and raised in rural Wisconsin. She lives and draws in Chicago. Her artwork is in private collections around the world.
