Planets are created by accretion, a process which melds disparate
particles and shapes them into perfect spherical forms - chaos into
harmony. The diaspora of stars and planets in the universe appear to
be dispersed randomly, however, by the very same forces they were
formed, they are ultimately destined to collapse into themselves
before another 'Big Bang'. Chaos - harmony, birth - death.
In a general sense, the word cosmos originates from the Greek (κόσμος)
and is defined as an orderly or harmonious system, it is also is a
synonym for the Universe.
The term 'biomimesis' comes from the Greek words bios, meaning life,
and mimesis, meaning to imitate. Biomimicry is the examination of
nature, its models, systems, processes, and elements to emulate or
take inspiration from nature in order to solve human problems.
Just how this can inform the work of the artist is the focus of my
particular interest, transforming biological facts into ficticious
landscapes. These screen prints are single editions, forming part of a
series of 20. This is part of a larger investigation into patterns of
creation and destruction that seek their formation by the underlying
structures of the cosmos. By allowing the inks to form their own
structures and 'landscapes' – new forms emerge, and in so doing arrive
at their own singular 'order'. A new order. I am interested in the
lack of artist's influence over this process, the works are determined
by the very same forces which govern the creation of celestial bodies
and tiny rock formations alike.
