FRACTAL ECLIPSE + DISLOCATION OF A MORE COMPLETE PATTERN FEATURES TWO BODIES OF WORK FROM ARTIST FIONA ROSS AT PAGE BOND GALLERY, FEBRUARY 22 TO MARCH 30, 2019.
Fractal Eclipse + Dislocation of a More Complete Pattern: two bodies of work by Fiona Ross at the Page Bond Gallery. The exhibitions open Friday, February 22 from 6 to 8PM and is on view through March 30, 2019.
The Fractal Eclipse series is inspired by an eclipse and by celestial globes, spheres and ring dials. These intricate mechanisms, created to predict and make tangible our relationship to sun and planets, form an intimate physical and metaphysical link between the objects and the infinite reaches of space.
The series Dislocation of a More Complete Pattern draws inspiration from the occurrence of pattern dislocations, or imperfections, that spontaneously arise and evolve in nature. These imperfect patterns, visible everywhere from fingerprints to crystalline structures, emerge and evolve spontaneously, causing significant and exciting changes in patterns.
