Detail of BioDynamic
Acrylic on Canvas, Mixed Media, Other




The first humans developed symbols to communicate based on nature. I began printing objects that I was drawn to in nature. Patterns began to emerge in their structures. For example, the foot of the salamander began to look very similiar to the branch of a tree. The fin of a fish began to have the same shape and form as a shell. The objects displayed are some of the most significant to me. As I was printing the objects, I noticed that the canvas also had creases and wrinkles that drew my attention. I proceeded to cut through the canvas allowing the shapes to emerge. Both the negative and positive shapes that emerged became my second discovery. I arranged and rearranged these shapes to form my third arrangement. Through this creative process, I discovered that I did not need to hold onto the various arrangements, but rather restore them and place them next to their original wrinkle. As I extracted the wrinkles or creases from the canvas, I painted them. I have continued to arrange the outlines of the wrinkles in different ways. The original wrinkles were replaced but their impressions are being recombined to create new shapes and potentially symbols.
