The “all-over” distributions are linear random walks with numerous iterations. The artist’s first pen plotted works employed this procedure as a form of computer automatism. This automatism, as an algorithmic procedure, mimes the use of chance and automatic drawing in early 20th Century art. Such techniques were employed by dada artists and poets, early surrealists and later abstract expressionists. Verostko used such techniques in his drawing and painting dating from 1961. His earliest algorithmic use dates from 1981.
