These works all part of Murmuration, a solo show at Anthology Fine Art, Denver.
Murmuration, n: a low, indistinct, continuous sound, as of a stream or far-off voices; a flock of starlings.
This body of work is part of a continuing interest in pattern; in particular, the seemingly random yet perfectly composed patterns of natural phenomena, each made up of many small parts that together are transformed into something much greater than themselves. Grasses waving in the wind, froth leaping in rivers rushing down to the sea, birds flying in formation, vines curling down a wall; each tells a story of the environmental factors that influenced their creation; each is constantly in flux in response to those factors. I am fascinated by the resulting forms, choreographed by the laws of nature yet endlessly variable. In a society where so much focus is placed on personal gain, I find beauty in the collective efforts of individual marks, and inspiration in the lesson in humility that they teach.
