Quotes: There is a Theory…

pollack

“There is a theory which states that people who respond to Pollock are subconsciously drawn to the fractal complexity hidden in his paintings color contrast. But then there is also a theory which states that fractal analysis of a rhino’s droppings discloses an amazing measure of self-similarity of its components. You may draw your own inferences.” ~ Christopher

Arts: Charles Clary’s Massive Paper Cuts ~ Wired

pl_arts_paper1_f

These works are simply amazing to me. My favorite is shown here: Double Diddle Degradation #3

Artist Charles Clary says he wants his constructions to appear ever-expanding — overwhelming exhibition spaces like replicating viruses or reverberating sound waves. Inspired by microorganisms, anthills, and auditory phenomena, he layers colored paper to build up the variegated textures and sinewy shapes of his room-sized installations. The pieces may look like they’re highly orchestrated precision-cut sculptures, but Clary favors a more organic creative philosophy: “It’s all intuitive. It’s just one layer playing off another, playing off another,” he says. “But I do try to make the viewer wonder whether they’re handmade or if industrial equipment is used, so I have to be very clean with my cuts.”

Ok so, I am featured in the February issue of WIRED MAGAZINE which is currently on sale in major bookstores. Check it out if you feel so inclined and thank you for all your continued support. I’ll try and get a good scan of the article to post at a later date but alas I have no scanner. And for all of you that reside in the UK area I will be featured in their March issue with a completely different layout. Hope all is well!!!

More of his amazing work can be found here via Wired and here on Society6.
