Order / Chaos… Gold
Pared down to its most basic form and executed in the purest constituents, this diptych epitomises the very spirit at the heart of the collection… duality and dichotomy
The work examines the differentiation of head and heart and their mutual incompatibility. The screen printed anatomical drawings are applied in matt powder blue upon a mirror finished metallic gold ground. These deceptively simple images are embellished with the words Order and Chaos, executed in micro spherical glass beads. The text is at once virtually invisible, yet at certain angles and in certain lights luminously radiant. It is this simple yet challenging juxtaposition that promotes the examination of the implied belief and creates a framework for further analysis.
Order Chaos, the concept behind the series of screen prints comes from the dualistic nature of the Dangerous Minds practice. Playing on the chaotic and emotional nature of the heart contrasted and balance by the ordered and analytical brain. These print are a stripped down and meditative interpretation of order and chaos, emotion and thought.
