In this clip a short documentary on Jack Wright:

What a great use of the dot! Some works of his that are loosely based on circles remind me of the aster flower when its losing some of its shape in the wind.

Another artist who created wonderful abstract art using the dot in many works was the great Clyfford Still. Some of the Aboriginal artists from Australia such as Gloria Petyarre also use the dot as a basis for their art.
