Indeterminist is part of an ongoing visual exercise that probes the tension between cause and effect, and free will. The are no answers here to the question about whether things are concurrent and therefore predetermined, or the accumulation of choices. The relationship is hard to discern, even in its most basic form. Together the work is a cluster of abstraction combining a digital drawing method with silkscreen printing and paint. It depicts growth by progressively manipulating parts of a whole, adapting to environment and obstacles. It emulates entropy and evolution, two sides of the same process. It exemplifies nature as it exists in my mind: a series of confluences, expansions, and metamorphoses.
