Proliferation and distillation

I read an article about one of my favourite artists, Francis Alys, recently. His artistic process was explained as a cycle of proliferation and distillation. He picks one idea and riffs on it with as many variations and mediums as he can. Then he distills it into its strongest form.

I'm in a studio season of proliferating.  I made these sketches a year ago in Belfast as references for linoprints. I don't know where it will take me but I am enjoying the process.
