First, the algorithm:
All nine paintings were done simultaneously
 The center squares go around the color wheel: yellow, orange, red-orange, red, red-violet, blue, green, yellow-green.
 The border around the center square is the complement of the color in step.
 Going outward toward the edge of the painting, the color of the next area is analogous to the color in step.
 The final color is analogous to the color in step. The markings, taken from Japanese painting theory, show movement and imperfection. The signature is in the style of a brush painting.
Second, the theory:
To begin, I created absolute precision and perfection. Straight lines and a strict algorithm decided colors for me. While the colors may be vibrant, the result is robotic. It is the result of a series of steps, which, after I devised them, were out of my control. To breathe life into the painting, I wanted to destroy the perfection through a series of quick, unconsidered brushstrokes. In sharp contrast to the first part of the painting, the dashes have no order about them. Whatever my hand wanted to do, it did, completely oblivious to the rules laid down for it.
