Seconds become hours, hours become days, days become cycles in nature and the natural order of things becomes apparent. Over time, a natural rhythm has developed … day in and day out.

It shows itself in the formation of natural plant growth. On a molecular and cellular level, there is a structure which dictates the object’s shape, and a rhythmic configuration to the way it grows. We see ancient rhythms every day … in the formation of algae in the sea, the way trees grow, the colours rust develops into.

This body of work has flowed in an attempt to just enjoy pattern as reflected by aspects of the simple plant world underpinned by the cadence of nature. 

 

 

Earth Fabric - Artist Satement

There is a 'connected-ness' to all aspects of Earth's planetary life. Some is tangible and known, much is intangible and unknown. There is an intuition that all life has; discovered by science or not. The bits in between the structuarl parts- the intangible and unfathomable but which we instinctively know are there - play such a role in keeping this planet going. Like a floweer knowing when to bloom or not even if the obvious conditions are difficult - a tenacity that the structure of the eart seems to have.

The  'pattern' that everything is subject to is alogorithmic. One sees it everywhere - Grass blowing in the wind, in the way stones fall, the way the wind blows clouds, the way sand sipples from way action, all seemingly random but not, caaused by natures forces and their reason for being so. Unseen yet incredibly powerful, and somehow remarkabl, the earth continues to sustain itself. Not without immeasurable damage by ourselves, though.

this body of work coninues the interest I have in the beauty of nature and the way nature shows itself as in its forms, patterns and cycles. And yet, as stewards of nature, we continue to remain surprisingl unaccountable and unconcerned, which despite earth's remarkable strength through this intrwoven connectedness, may prove to be more  influential than we think in the planet being able to sustain itself, and all its life.
