Pen & Ink Drawing
14" x 11"
For these kinds of projects I build my images out from the smallest detail, allowing for the overarching composition to grow in an unpremeditated, organic manner. This creates a contrast between the very specifically designed details and their spontaneous relationship to each other.
The title of this piece is based on the British Mathematician, Alan Turing, and his research into Morphogenesis.Turing was able to demonstrate how seemingly random animal markings (stripes, spots and such) are expressions of precise mathematical equations.
Order on a micro scale builds into apparent randomness on a macro scale
