Using the language of geometry within a narrow framework, this work explores concepts of mechanics, natural phenomenon, ecology, and natural and designed systems. The forms within reference a varied list of sources, such as a pine cone that only releases seeds when a fire supplies sufficient heat, a pearl slowly forming within a bivalve shell, the surface of a strawberry, the warmth of sunlight, shifting power dynamics, or the concept of infinity and perpetual motion. The patterns could be meandering thoughts, reflections in water, tracks upon soil, handwritten messages, or leaves falling from trees. Yet each composition remains esoteric, firmly planted in abstraction. The external world is filtered through a personal lens. Representative works reveal transcendent qualities of creativity and the mechanisms of the natural world.
