Abstract Pyramid 021817

I got the idea for the composition below from Paul Klee’s Quarry, 1945, in a round-about way. I had Klee in mind when I folded and scored the paper first, in columns, then in irregular rows. Then I thumbed through one of my books of Klee’s paintings and found Quarry.  I couldn’t quite get the perspective of Klee’s blocks of stones, so I changed the design to represent the component blocks of the great pyramids.  I drew lines in charcoal where fault lines of the paper folds did not exist, hoping to create the illusion of a pyramid from different angles.
