‘Phenomena’ was held at João Ferreira Gallery in 2005.
The work took as its starting point a variety of natural phenomena such as light, surface and structure. Simple iterations of regular forms and processes resulted in complex works evoking the rich, sensual nature of their sources. Ranging from cut paper to assembled acrylic constructions, the works were typically labour-intensive and visually dense, continuing my exploration of process, pattern and design.
