Seeing spontaneous patterns forming in the physical world has always captured my attention. With time it became apparent that a handful of these physical manifestations have, for thousands of years, been internalized and transformed into content laden symbols. One ever present example is the variations of the same stylized spirals. They are seen on a Mimbres pots, Celtic tombstones, Van Gogh’s Starry Night and a tattooed face of the Maori man. With today’s technologies we push the limits of seeing into and out to the edges of the universe. These new views continually confirm that many familiar patterns are found at all known scales of space and time.
In my work I keep reworking a handful of archetypal patterns including spirals, packing patterns, and dendritic systems. These patterns appear in different materials and processes sometimes incorporating several of these patterns in one piece. My intention is to permeate my work with these timeless and familiar patterns as they dance between order and chaos.
