Artist Statement – Falling Apart
This work was inspired by a visit at the Citeaux Abbey in France. I admired the architects’ work in the creation of the old library, and how they used repeating art elements to create movement, interest and unity. At times, individual elements were only repeated twice, which created a visual echo reinforcing important aspects of the design. Other elements were used as units of pattern, the intervals between them varied, and sometimes the elements overlapped, creating rhythm and a sense of movement. I was amazed that I actually felt the beats of the rhythm of design both visually and physically.
With my camera, I photographed the light that was reflected off the architectural details. I used repeated patterns and motif that move from one photograph to another producing a progressive rhythm that unified into experiencing the Citeaux through my dramatic sensory disturbances during migraine aura.
