Dragonfly dome photo1.jpeg

This dome-shaped work features a geometrical pattern of dragonflies, made from aluminum. The dome has an entrance for the viewer to experience the work from within.

Artist's statement:
"My work deals with natural forms. I use these forms as modular units.
The units create patterns and can be configured into a variety of Archimedean shapes. Repeating patterns echo nature’s economy of design while playing with concepts of space, shape, symmetry and perceptual phenomenon.
Each work has a gravitational center and from that center’s core it pulls the viewer into its orbit. Certain of these structures open into airy, spherical atmospheres which invite exploration. By entering, the viewer becomes the centripetal point -- experiencing the art’s eye view of the world."
