Course Pack, session taught by Adam Williamson.
Learn how to draw moorish biomorphic patterns using dynamic square and rhombic grid systems.
The act of creating biomorphic art is an example of ‘coming-to-knowing’: learning through doing, rather than thinking about it. Apprentices are expected osmose the knowledge, rather than have every detail explained in an abstract way. Often craftsmen remark that the patterns are their teachers, and corrections suggest themselves in the voice of the designs.
The act of drawing biomorphs teaches the artist to trust; working freehand and with freeforms involves engaging with chaos. Over time, the arabesque art develops muscle memory and this process becomes easier.
