Admiring: Mapper of Alchemy

Louise Despont laying out her work
(from her tumblr)

The work of Louise Despont reminds me of alchemical diagrams mapping out processes and visions. Creating her works on the paper of old ledger books, she uses muted colors to fill the pages with geometric shapes and curves. I found it difficult to pick a piece to showcase because each piece is so captivating in the way she balances simplicity of shape with complexity of design.

What do you see when you look at the circles above? A Buddhist wheel? A geometer's diagram? An ouroboros?
