  • "Illusion is very important to me: the underlying structure gives the illusion of something, it is mysterious… When the squiggles are skinnier they have one central layer, in the middle they have two and when they are very large they have three. That is a result of wanting to give the work an organic life-Filike feel, like the rings of a tree that grows with layers."
    —Josh Sperling
