Artist statement

My artwork explores the idea that people have different styles of thinking influenced by the left and right side of the brain. This is shown through the Fibonacci sequence which represents an underlying order and is portrayed in my portrait as a fragile tiara of light – a crown fringed with a cog-like edge. The fact that the sequence begins at the eye refers to how this influences our general perception of life. It wraps around the brow and forehead, also suggesting power. My interest in art and science have led me to interact and empathise with different groups of people. This choice carries through to my artwork and illustrates how polarities can exist in a single entity.
