No -- no -- no -- not yet., 2024


Plotter-rendered generative painting Python, mixed water-medium on cotton paper

22 1/2 x 29 7/8 in

"Well -- I -- I -- I..." and  "No -- no -- no -- not yet." are two abstract generative watercolor paintings. They are outputs of Licia He's original generative algorithm titled "Rotating Circle, Cube, Cover." This 2024 Python-based algorithm generates instructions for drawing robots. Pen plotters (Axidraw A1) physically rendered four selected outputs from this algorithm in 2024 using a customized extra-fine brush and assorted watermedia.
