I will be exhibiting recent work at HELIX TASTING ROOM during the month of November. The title of this exhibition is ELEMENTS OF NATURE and features black and white botanical studies I have done over the past couple of years.
Functional MRI’s demonstrate that images of fractal patterns in nature trigger a restorative experience in the brain that alleviates stress and anxiety. In this collection of work I have been focusing on the fractal patterns found in small elements of nature.
While making this work I discovered that individual elements such as a leaf can represent the infinite qualities of a vast wilderness whether I am in my backyard or somewhere exotic and remote. The connection between the small and large natural landscapes are important reminders of the nurturing aspects of spending time outdoors. It is my hope that you will find a soothing calm experience from viewing these images.
