integrations

Compositions on handmade Abaca paper expand the visual vocabulary of the circle.  The Enso has been integrated with science and the works have evolved into psychological portraits that capture interior moments, frozen in time.  I translate data on thoughts and feelings into fields of color-coded dots that are entangled within spheres of empty space.  Colors are coordinated to a flow chart I developed that categorizes and assigns a Pantone reproducible color to each emotion.  The works, evocative of the interplay between neurotransmitters and chemicals in the brain, reveal patterns of emotional progressions.
