A solo exhibition, March-April 2018 at Kenise Barnes Fine Art.
Pareidolia refers to the way we sometimes see things that aren’t really there in random phenomena:
the ice cream castle in the sky, the man on the moon, or Jesus on the grilled cheese sandwich.
I look for what actually is there.
In this body of work, “Anti-Pareidolia” I examine complex structures -- coral, crystals plants, formed through random natural processes, and find the hidden patterns. I look at my subjects closely in order to understand how they have come to be.
I invite the viewer to look beyond a literal description of familiar forms, and see what else they might discover.
I hope to inspire curiosity and wonder..
