From my youth I have been fascinated by visual patterns, the math behind them and the detail that can be constructed. I have greatly enjoyed exploring patterns in nature and the more detailed representations of those patterns in Fractals such as those of the infamous Mandelbrot and Julian Sets.
The results of thread suspended upon threads seem to fit into this fascination. The constructs and their accompanying visual paths, while constrained, seem delicately complex and entertaining.
I am exploring many levels of design and color, with painted or photographic backgrounds, translucency, or the duplicating aspect of a reflective surface. I am still excited by the range of expression that is possible.
My wish here is to show you the range of expression these constructs offer so that I may enter into a dialog with those who have interest, aiming eventually towards working together to pick patterns, colors and an arrangement of pieces which will create a thread of conversation that informs and entertains.
I often mention that a piece of mine was “chosen” for a show. It is also possible for an artist to hire a gallery to put up his art. I have never done that. It is far more affirming to apply and have other Artists feel my art is worthy of being seen.
