The side-by-side drawings, arranged as diptychs, suggest mirror images, each with their own imperfections. Welty’s dense accumulations of imperfect markings feel sophisticated in their simplicity, yet convey the intensity of the artist’s painstaking task. Stacked one on top of the other, her lines evoke the hypnotizing rhythm of organic patterns—such as waves on the beach or the concentric rings of a tree stump. When looking closely at the marks, each of Welty’s squiggly lines seems to bleed into the next. The effect is at once dizzying and mesmerizing.
