what if we were to consider the possibility that maybe there are no divine plans other than
those that we invent and that everything only seems purposeful because we choose to make it so.
polymorphous is defined as having, taking, or passing through many different forms or stages.
the continuing development of the polymorphism series arose from a fascination with the
similarity between natural forms and shapes that occur as a matter of inevitability.
as the series progressed i allowed myself the indulgence of enhancing
certain aspects of the composition, but not to the extent of
compromising the underlying principle.
here is a simple demonstration of how the process works
think of this as an experiment exploring the range of possibilities available by combining the simplest of elements.
the tonal images created by superimposing successive circles and lines, expressed as radial and linear gradients,
develop in complexity in a way that resembles the growth of natural forms. There has been no attempt made to
create anything representational - the images just evolve that way as the process progresses.
there comes a point however, at which i can understand what is likey
to happen and can't resist playing god.
this isn't like drawing - i didn't have any idea of what the finished piece would look like;
it is merely a process which continues until i have what i consider to be a satisfactory result.
maybe this is how the universe came into being? there was no-one to "see that it was good".
the polymorphism series is my personal leap of faith. it is my attempt to
understand and embrace the uncertainty and insecurity that comes
with knowing there never was a plan
and never will be.
