The title is a quote by 17th century Swiss mathematician, Jakob Bernoulli. The images, diagrams and equations reference the inherent nature of fractal geometry through the continual appearance of the logarithmic spiral. I am interested in dualities in our human condition-chance versus strategy, faith versus reason, serendipity versus design. I relate these themes to the patterns of fractal shapes found in nature and how the patterns relate to our relationship to and separation from nature. Congratulations to Susan Lowdermilk, a BEST OF SHOW AWARD winner for Infinite Possibilities!
Artist BioAs a printmaker and book artist, I primarily work in relief media such as woodcut and wood engraving. I teach art and applied design courses at Lane Community College in Eugene Oregon. My work appears in many public collections including the Getty Museum, the Library of Congress and the New York Public Library and is represented in galleries throughout the United States. I explore mark and impression as visual and conceptual ideas through my work in print media and artist’s books. I strive to express the tenuous qualities of the human experience and human interaction through my representation of objects and mark as visual metaphors. I invite the viewer to overlay their own personal metaphors and narratives as they experience my work.
