Before the ocean and the earth appeared — before the skies had overspread them all— the face of Nature in a vast expanse was naught but Chaos uniformly waste. It was a rude and undeveloped mass, that nothing made except a ponderous weight; and all discordant elements confused, were there congested in a shapeless heap. Ovid - Metamorphoses, I 5-9.
Erupting from the Void, all life was created in a rampant confused force of energy, power, and mass. This series, completed during a residency at Takt Berlin investigates the forces that underpin existence. The works were inspired by mythology (particularly Greek), physics, Chaos Theory, Big Bang Theory, nature and fractals. I sought to unleash all of this extensive research and inspiration onto the paper and create images without overall direction. I became an instrument of Chaos - riding the lightning of creation.
This series was completed during a residency at the Motley Bauhaus (late 2018) in Fitzroy, Melbourne, Australia. Created after a long absence from my art practice and during a time of deep introspection and contemplation of human existence.
