"We are inspired by Chaos Theory and our exhibit, 'Chaos and Order,' pays homage to our belief in its truths. Systems often appear to be orderly but, in fact, behave chaotically. In addition, systems that appear to be chaotic often have an underlying order. Computer scientists and mathematicians have demonstrated this in countless simulations and that self similar images, Fractals, Fibonacci numbers and the Golden Ratio (Phi) form part of a sacred Geometry; this is revealed in the natural world and perhaps the Universe."
Artist Statement ~ David Levy:
I love the purity of geometric forms, crisp and elegant line and the visual record of brushstrokes. In combining these things I wish to visually please, provoke, and, on occasion to perplex my audience, but always to engage them. I want my paintings, optical art and photographs to provide a kind of visual aerobics for viewers' eyes; in addition, a tug of war between flat, two-dimensional pattern and the illusion of three-dimensionality. My art is cerebral, intellectual and mathematical, and for this exhibit I have used it to teach concepts relatable to Chaos Theory in order to reveal its magic.
Artist Statement ~ Paul Hansen:
In the words of Carl Jung...“In all chaos there is a cosmos, in all disorder a secret order.”About my paintingsWhen I work on a painting it's a dubious journey. I feel all art already exists before it is created. It's a matter of channeling it, becoming a conduit of a collective spirit.I try to tap into something primal, something inherent. There is no doubt that I have been influenced by mythology and art from many cultures. From cave paintings, Celtic to Aztec to African and American Indian Art. To me art is about connecting. If one of my paintings evokes an emotion on any level then I suppose the spiritual axiom is true, that we are all somehow connected.
