Screen IV Limited Edition of 12

Screen IV is very appealing to me. Despite its similarities to Screen I, it has a greater diagonal energy and seems to pulse and swirl. Between the regular jade green paths and the diagonal paths of cream eyelets, there is a continual perceptual shift, and patterns emerge and recede with fascinating regularity.

Screen IV uses the same 2 tiles as Screen I, but adds in a third tile. For the three dimensional version, the third tile is based on a diagonally symmetrical tile, so the design can be used as its own opposite with the pattern is applied rotated 180 degrees. This diagonal DNA changes the visual character of the screen, embedding much stronger diagonals in the design when seen from a distance.
