Microscapes

From microcosm and scapes

Microcosm

noun.

  1. a little world; a world in miniature (opposed to macrocosm), anything that is regarded as a world in miniature: human beings, humanity, society, or the like, viewed as an epitome or miniature of the world or universe.

Capturing time and change by allowing a mixture of water, ink and chemicals to react and evaporate from the paper surface, these pieces are inspired by the Process art movement and creative sentiment that values the creative journey rather than the end result. The focus is the method of experimentation and allowing the natural tendencies of the ingredients to react and take on their own shapes and forms. These processes that have organically occurred on the plane of paper, from mixing through to drying, are then digitally captured in extremely high resolution, with microscopic details being blown up and amplified. The artwork is thus recording the passing of time, with the end result resembling a landscape of micro-cosmic proportions.
