The world can appear chaotic because over time complexity increases.
Contempt, aggression, optimism, love, submission, awe, disapproval, remorse, each can arise in many forms and combinations in the tempestuous mind. If each series of emotions that arise is acknowledged and accepted, clear unpredictable creativity emerges. Not an escape from but an allowance for a state of interior immobility, an equilibrium of emotional forces allowing chaos and order to harmonize and generate together. What is produced is a change in the quality of consciousness, the freedom to let go of being deliberate whilst continuing to perform prescribed actions.
Starting from a set of simple rules that interact over time a system emerges.
The system self informs, generations emerge and endow their descendent in a chain of growth- an evolution.
Complexity grows to a degree where by the point of departure is obscured, the origin disappears, only the path remains.
A state is reached where both complexity and volatility exist simultaneously with supreme order, each in different ratios.
Self similarity and scale produce environments that in turn feed back information to the emerging form and its ground.
Bends in a river, branching veins of a leaf, jagged rock face geometry- each holds both complexity and order, fused at varying scales.
Each work is in two parts, not opposites but opposed positions on a spectrum.
Materials leave traces on one part of the work and are combined into the physical surface of the other. Geometry is organized, interfered with, obscured, repeated and fused with gesture.
Neither contrary or complementary the resulting object pairs include their own histories, incorporating their own colorful shadows.
