I am fascinated by what makes us who we are, from the visible aspects to the invisible roots. From the outlines of our faces down to our DNA; the unseen code that makes us all. We didn’t ask to be made this way, we just inherited it. Without choice. We received it and we are expected to pass it on. I am also enchanted by our DNA’s visual structure and the power it has to replicate, spread, and create something new.
My new work on paper, “The circular journey: telling of our stories,” is an interpretation of the visual form of DNA, using cylindrical forms made from watercolor paper.
