Acrylic on Canvas, 20x12
This work is inspired by different mental states which constantly seek structure for the never-ending chaos.
Part of the chaos includes understanding that while we are whole as one we are simultaneously a small part of a whole. I seek to translate where I see myself in the grand scheme of existence.
One planet, 7*billion individual mental states, coexisting in one common story called life!
An important part of her process is finding the calm amidst the chaos.
The meticulously drawn clusters of symbols and binary code (ones and zeroes) weave through her work. They serve as a reminder of the human impact on all life on the planet.
While technology connects us all, it will consume us, filter our experiences, and keep us out of touch with nature if we don’t use it in a balanced way. If we aren’t careful, she worries virtual reality could be all we have left!
Balancing our use of technology with our behaviors will be key to preserving our planet and our experience on it.
The clutter of symbols also parallel mnemonics with amnesia; an idea inspired by a universal feeling of information overload, oftentimes resulting in memory lapse.
Acts of repetition and patterning are continuous during my creative journey. They help keep me centered and gain a sense of calm amidst current world chaos.
In this piece it manifests through meticulous and purposefully drawn, symbols mixed with binary code (ones and zeroes) clustered, repetitive and tightly organized. These represent noise and chaos. Part of that noise involves how present day tech consumption filters or even replaces so much of our real life experience with the actual world because the physical world is disappearing. Putting this noise into some sense of organization is satisfying and centering, and perhaps my nostalgia for how life was before technology comes into play and is part of the reason I am so sensitive to present day life on this planet.
