"My work features intricate hand-drawn geometric patterns with vivid gradient colors and celestial nightscapes. The patterns allude to out-of-body sensations such as the fight-or-flight within panic attacks or hallucinatory distortions and the visual sensation of seeing the same overlapping image as if in motion, known as palinopsic tracers. The saturated colors depict visual themes like prismatic kaleidoscopes.
I mentally build my patterns for each piece as I start. Drawing a cohesive pattern becomes trial and error, and I love that. As a result, some patterns that I've completed I haven't replicated." - Jose Di Gregorio
