"My work draws inspiration from repetitive mark making, biological forms, and plant life. It is a formal exploration of shape and pattern. I am fascinated by nature and biology. Cells are of particular interest to me. I am intrigued by their ability to reproduce, mutate and spread uncontrollably. To the untrained eye, cells can be seen as beautiful forms/shapes, interesting patterns. However, to a specialist these forms mean so much more including the spread of unwanted disease and death. I find it fascinating how something so detrimental as cancer, can look so beautiful under a microscope. In our world, things often appear one way, but upon closer examination, are completely different."
This exhibition is made possible by the generous support of Doc and Virginia Hanley.
