I never draw abstract patterns, but I really enjoy the complex patterns other artists create. Where do they come from? I can happily sit and draw entirely from my imagination but patterns never come out of my pen, it's always people, or animals birds and trees, with the odd contorted house. Never patterns or abstract designs. It's a mystery to me how others do it. Alain Marciano's patterns are complex and intriguing or simple and clean. Sometimes they seem to refer to concrete objects, but on closer examination what appeared to be there, turns out not to be quite what I thought it was:

St, Alain Marciano

Others are purely abstract:

acidité, Alain Marciano

And I'm enjoying both kinds.
