The smallest, most insignificant change happening at the chromosomal level, alters life is ways no one can ever predict. Many of us live with altered lives. I often wonder what life may have been like, had the slight change, the size less than a grain of salt, had not happened in the embryonic stage of my development. Science is fascinating, and it has taught me that every little thing I do in life matters. This piece is a reminder of that appreciation.
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.
I inject my work with tightly organized clusters of symbols inspired by binary code, pop culture, archaic lettering, mathematics, alchemy, and my iconography. This process of “organizing chaos” is intrinsic and cathartic, and visibly creates stability in my work.
