Organic patterns that are created by movement or growth are frequently asymmetrical in a way that looks random. There are, however, predictable features that appear throughout multiple organic systems, and these features guide our recognition of the world around us. The grace with which animal groups bunch up and spread apart is reflected in the patterns of birthmarks and freckles on our own bodies. Using deliberate marks to create images that represent natural, unintentional patterns, I attempt in this series to investigate the place where nature and artifice meet. These images in watercolor and ink were shown at Du Mois Gallery in the summer of 2014.
