3 shapes, signs of the universe

©O'Brien, Book of Light, page 162, 12x16", mm collage
For several years I have been fascinated by the 3 basic shapes. This quote thrills me: "The Japanese interpret these three primordial and abstract signs as the graphic and spatial metaphor of the three elements: earth, fire, water. Earth fits into the square, fire burns in a triangle and water tends to roundness." form Traces of the Brush by Louise Boudonnat and Harumi Kushizaki
