About this work: Belgium flax beaten in a 25-pound Valley beater for 3.5 hours, then an additional 6 hours in a 2-pound Valley beater. Paper sheets formed using a deckle box, on a mould with a wove facing, and dried under pressure on blotter paper. Screen printed with slightly transparent white acrylic ink.
Imagery based on the work of Pierre de Fermat (1601-1665) whose eponymous law describes the lowest energy configuration of different elements of nature, such as the efficient packing of seeds on sunflower heads, which occurs in Fibonacci ratios. The artist became interested in this pattern after making sunflower paper. Also drawing on the work of Buckminster Fuller, whose philosophy was to accomplish the most with the least amount of energy necessary.
