FIGURAE

The thesis I work from is basically that I use large and small patterns that make noise. To achieve peace, their must be something quiet, either colors or images that exude tranquility.

Octangulum and Ovali are the latin words for an eight sided shape, and an oval shape.

I love to throw a lot of patterns together and find the compositional harmony within the mess. For some time now I have been fascinated by terrazzo, ship rope and brass, and wanted to incorporate it into a piece of artwork.

The rope and the custom cut brass was easy enough, but to achieve a terrazzo look I had to go to Garant and browse their stock. I found some different patterns which I thought appropriate. It is a relatively easy material to work with, a sharp pair of scissors and you are good to go.
