This group of works started when I began stretching my own canvas. I realized there are more options for my process if I put down information before the fabric is stretched. I have come to a process of folding arches paper after applying acrylic ink. I sometimes repeat this process many times on one piece before I mount it on a board and then proceed to draw and paint on the symmetrical patterns. The symmetry provokes a totem of life and shapes in a way that will never cease to inspire me. Hermann Rorschach was a psychologist who showed ink blots to his patients as a way of seeing into the mind by provoking the imagination. I enjoy being honest with my imagination when working on an acrylic ink blot, seeing the patterns that have emerged from these works has been intriguing. Geometric and organic meet in a way that inspires the viewer to see depth in a landscape full of life forms and stories of all kinds. Many patterns that occur in nature, are also introduced in the work when a random element is brought to the process, such as the folding of wet ink or the use of water to allow the ink to move and bleed of its own accord. This work is meant to be a gateway for the viewer and help show that the patterns of life can't help but take form, not only in reality but also within the mind. Our reality is built upon our vision.
