Containing Chaos

"Much of my work involves introducing elements of chaos and randomness, which I then use as stimuli to respond to. For Containing Chaos, I allowed these elements to the forefront. Working intuitively, I let the paint run where it did, directing in a very limited way, the placement of the colors on the surfaces. Letting go of control and expectations, the randomness on the canvas informed my decisions. The way I see it, all endeavors to bring something into being are a collaboration between personal individual efforts and the often chaotic forces present within the world that are beyond control. The law of entropy says things tend to disorder. Remembering this when setting about planning, organizing, and structuring within the world and especially when things fall apart can instill a sense of peace whilst working within the chaos. Embrace entropy."
