Infinite Architecture

A series of works dealing with design patterns present in nature, from small objects, flowers, plants, to large systems, like constellations. Originally they were framed using dark materials, scorched wood and black encaustic paint on simple oak frames. For the smaller pieces in the series, I would like to explore some other possibilities which would free images from the wall. This must mean the series isn’t finished yet.
