Geometric designs rooted in the mathematical concept of recursion shine in works ranging from iridescent acrylic on canvas, to 24K gold leaf on paper, to stark black and white on raw Tyvek sheets. What is recursion? A recurrence is something that is happening again. Recursion is the process of repeatedly applying some action to the outcome from the last time you took that action. More than simple repetition, it remembers the past and keeps building on it, resulting in patterns of unexpected complexity. These bold geometric works invite the senses to participate in contemplation of recursion through images that are precise and true to the technical details of their mathematical content.
