Ether and Verse 2016-2017  
 

The knowledge of which geometry aims is the knowledge of the eternal.  Plato, Republic, VII, 52.​                                                                                                                                                                        

Platonic solids appear at the birth of life. All matter is constituted of molecules, made of atoms adding up to their own kind of minimal molecular geometry.  Viewed under a light microscope, a cross section of human DNA reveals intricate and perfect geometric order.  The tetrahedron, cube, octahedron, dodecahedron and icosahedron resonate as a mystical informational system coded for life.

My paintings explore the intelligent energy of these of these ironically common place forms. Though subservient to their mathematical dictates, my work plays across the surface language of geometry working with colour and consideration to release clues as to their possible and powerful essences.
