Circles. Rotation. Vertigo. And, chaos. These are the words that come to mind when I think about this latest composition. I was inspired by the fractal repetition of a single form, a bead. The colours and patterns are mesmerizing, and I wanted to capture the sensation of continuous transformation. The end result is a piece that is both chaotic and soothing at the same time. The beads seem to float in mid-air, spinning and twisting around each other in an endless dance.

Inspired by Mandelbrot’s fractal, the shapes of these two compositions are based on simple rules that produce complex results. The result is an image in constant transformation that is never the same twice even though the primitive form remains the same: the circle.
The works are a metaphor for the way change occurs in our lives. The changes can be small and gradual, like the circles that grow or shrink, or they can be sudden and radical, like the rings that appear and disappear. Sometimes changes are predictable, like the changing of the seasons, and sometimes they come without warning, like a natural disaster.
