Cellular Tectonics

Paintings, Drawings & Installtion

2010 - 2017

‘Tectonics’ is a continued investigation of cellular configurations inspired by the microscopic formations of fossilized coral. The work examines the repetition of geometric patterns and shapes that appear in nature similar to fractals. Tectonics are wall installations made of watercolor, colored pencil, and graphite on paper mounted on foam, and magnets. ‘Heliofungia’ is the name of a type of coral that forms like plates. Like so many corals, it is dying in our warming oceans. This is not an illustration, but a continued meditation on all things cellular - their growth and death, creation and destruction.
