Grid-15 marks the midpoint and a new direction in the gridz series of 30.  Gridz 1-14 have been mostly experimental and helped me explore and discover a lot about this art form through scrupulous analysis. Hopefully the analytical approach to previous pieces will serve as a fairly objective demonstration of the power of gridz as an art form that both communicates and precipitates thoughts, ideas, and emotions through a minimalist canvas.



Grid-14 uses over 10 different shapes reflected over the y axis, which is notably more than most gridz we've seen so far.



Despite its apparent complexity, Grid-13 is made up of only 3 basic shapes (square, right triangle, and trapezoid) and a complex polygon.



Grid-12 is made up of 4 shapes reflecting over the y axis.

The parallelograms are all slanted so that they are pointing towards the middle along with all 4 triangles.  In addition to this central cohesiveness, there is a general feeling of upward movement when looking at the piece as a whole. This is due to the upside-down triangular or v-shape: the top row of six parallelograms is greater than the following row of 4, the top triangle is larger than the bottom one, and the polygons on the higher row spread wider than those at the bottom row.
