Inspired by the swirling, layered lines of time. My work is influenced by color and pattern in the natural world and this series is inspired by the incredible array of pattern in nature, particularly the the whimsical colors and lines in naturally formed agate rock.
There is beauty everywhere. The repetition of dots on a butterfly's wings, the Rorschach-like reflection on a beetle...the microscopic array of marks of cellular composition...nature's perfected pattern of a honeycomb. All of these inspire my work in this series.
"chromatic harmony" series
Like the harmonic rhythm of notes in a song, in this series, I use color to elicit a feeling. Different combinations resulting in different vibrations, aiming to transcend the viewer out of the ordinary. Created with acrylic, ink and pastels on Mulberry rice paper.
Like much of my work, this series is inspired by the pattern and color found in nature. The Rorschach-like design in naturally formed salt fields...the microscopic array of marks of cellular composition...nature's ever-changing pattern of tree bark and moss. All of these inspire my work in this series.
Inspired by the color and pattern in both nature and the commercial world, and explores the themes of beauty and consumerism and how we internalize the myriad of visual and thematic messages we receive on a daily basis. Created with a series of hand-cut flowers made from collages created with magazine clippings, clothing tags, hand-drawn illustrations, photography and more.
